Pirramimma Ironstone Shiraz 2015 (6 x 750mL) McLaren Vale, SA

Over 126 years ago Alexander Campbell Johnston planted his first small vine cutting in McLaren Vale, the Johnston family still produce estate grown wine and operate one of Australia’s oldest wineries - PIRRAMIMMA.

The old low trellis contoured Ironstone vineyard yields under 2 tonnes of fruit per acre. The concentrated fruit offered from these vines in 2015 provided us the quality and power to release our third Ironstone Shiraz.

After fermentation 40% of the wine was matured in new and second fill American oak for 28 months, with 60% matured in older barriques.

Winery Tasting Notes

The bouquet displays spicy red plum, mulberry, bramble and subtle cedary oak, with hints of coconut and vanilla. The palate shows distinctive regional flavours of dark chocolate, Satsuma plum, wild loganberries, blackberry and toasted Mocha oak, complemented by spice and black pepper notes.

This rich powerful Shiraz is wonderfully balanced with fruit, firm structured tannin and oak in harmony.

Approachable now or will develop for over 10 years with careful cellaring.
