This exceptional vintage, was due to a cool summer and dry moderate autumn propviding the ideal conditions for producing excellent Shiraz with great regional character. We selected parcels from our "War Horse", "Johnston Prolific", "Bellevue" and "Bullrush" blocks. To maintain distinctive varietal character only 20% of the wine was matured in new French oak barriques.

Expert Reviews

Full crimson-purple; crammed to the rafters on the bouquet and palate alike; the fruit has some unexpected cherry and spice nuances cohabiting with more conventional blackberry, bramble and dark chocolate; the overall impact is very powerful and full-bodied, the aftertaste with some lift, probably from the alcohol. Rating 95 - Drink by 2027, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 15 Sep 2014

Winery Tasting Notes


The wine displays aromas of spicy Satsuma plum, black cherry and bramble with hints of vanilla bean, infused with black pepper and mocha notes.


The intense palate delivers dark chocolate, spicy mulberry, liquorice and blackberry notes, enhanced by cracked peppercorn, with hints of coconut and cedar. This rich powerful Shiraz has great backbone, firm balanced tannins, deft oak handling, subtle toast and great length of flavour.

5-Star Winery - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2011 Edition

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. As one of the original landholders in the region the family is committed to its home and the regionally unique wines they produce.

Geoff Johnston, Grandson of Alexander, is the modern custodian of the family heritage. The Johnston family have grown the property from 97 hectares in 1892 to 250 hectares today. The family philosophy is to produce wines from estate grown grapes, ensuring the highest quality standards are met and the unique regional characters are displayed.
