  • About this winery

    Pirramimma was founded by Alexander Campbell Johnston in 1892 and has been owned and operated by the Johnston family ever since. The Johnston family arrived in South Australia in 1839 and in 1892 Alexander, the tenth of thirteen children, purchased 97 hectares of rich farmland southeast of the then fledgling village of McLaren Vale. He named his land Pirramimma, an Aboriginal phrase meaning "the moon and the stars". The vineyard soils vary from sandy, on the rise, to rich dark loam on the flat....

  • Tasting notes

    Aromas of spicy Satsuma plum, black cherry and bramble with hints of vanilla bean, black pepper and mocha. The flavourful palate ushers in dark chocolate, spicy mulberry, liquorice and dark berries, nuanced with hints of coconut and cedar. This powerful wine has great backbone, balanced tannins, subtle toast and a lengthy finish.

  • Viticultural notes

    This was an exceptional vintage. A cool summer and dry to moderate autumn gave the ideal conditions for Shiraz with great regional character. Parcels were selected from the War Horse, Oakley, Bullrush, Bellevue and Johnston Prolific blocks. Only 14% of the wine was matured in new French and American oak barriques to maintain the distinctive varietal character.
