Pirramimma Ironstone Malbec 2015
Special Price $45.00 Regular Price $70.00
Twenty percent barrel ferment in new French oak meets eighty percent matured in old French and American oak here, allowing the primary fruit to shout loudest in what is a complex chorus. There’s cherries, violets rhubarb and a certain brambliness. Plenty of silky tannins and a lovely cedary note too. Varietal, chewy, dense and delicious.

Pirramimma have been around for 120 years quietly making old fashioned, high quality wines. The last 10 years have been particularly exciting with the wines striking a balance between traditional sensibilities and a more modern expression of fruit. The tasting panel last had 16 individual Pirramimma wines on the bench and every single one of them met with unanimous approval from the tasting panel … which is very rare indeed.
