Pirramimma White Label Petit Verdot 2017
- McLaren Vale
- Red Wine
This delightful White Label Petit Verdot from Pirramimma Winery features a dark crimson colour. The fragrant bouquet gives off lifted scents of boysenberry, Kirsch cherry, violets and cedary oak. The lush palate contains juicy flavours of Santa Rosa plum, tangy morello cherry, spicy blackberry and musk, coupled with a gentle touch of Kalamata olive and blueberry. Fine tannins and subtle oak characters drive the rich palate to a long and persistent finale.
In 1892 Alexander Campbell Johnston planted the first small vine cuttings on his newly purchased 97-hectare property in McLaren Vale, South Australia. Alexander settled with his family on the property and proudly named it "Pirramimma", an Aboriginal phrase meaning 'the moon and the stars'. More than 115 years and three generations later the Johnston Family still operates one of Australia's oldest and proudest family owned and run wineries - Pirramimma. Making wines that range from the traditional to the innovative, Pirramimma is pure McLaren Vale.
