Pirramimma Ironstone Petit Verdot 2015
Special Price $45.00 Regular Price $70.00
Pirramimma helped pioneered Petit Verdot in Australia by planting it in the early eighties and releasing it as a stand alone varietal rater than just blending it away. Swiss wine writer Rene Brown believes that Pirramimma make the best on the planet. The 2014 vintage was recently awarded best Red wine of the year at the AWC wine show in Vienna. For the 2015, tiny yields have netted a black and powerful beast, a worthy second release of ‘Ironstone Petit Verdot’. It’s massive – black in colour and large of tannin and there’s a plethora of liquorice, spice, blackberries, olive and cherry too. Decant in the morning if you are going to drink now or cellar for up to an exceedingly long time indeed.

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.
