Alexander Campbell Johnston planted his first small vine cutting in 1892 and today the Johnston family still produce estate grown wine and operate one of Australia’s oldest wineries – Pirramimma. The word Pirramimma is an Aboriginal phrase meaning “the moon and the stars”.
Winemaking at Pirramimma has been a family affair for well over 100 years and is now in the very capable hands of Geoff Johnston, grandson of the winery’s founder.
Geoff describes this wine like so: "For this premium Petit Verdot we hand selected fruit from four different vineyards, soil types, locations and clones. The minuscule yields of concentrated fruit offered from these vines in 2015 provided us the quality and power to release our second Icon Petit Verdot under our Ironstone series.
We barrel fermented 40% of the juice in new French oak barriques, with 25% matured in 2 and 3 year old French barriques, plus older oak for the other 35%, maturation was 28 months.
This powerful intense wine displays a bouquet of blackberry, violets, Spanish olive, Dutch liquorice and spicy cedary oak, with hints of lavender and musk.
The palate delivers blueberry, star of anise, Kalamata olive, black cherry and bramble, all enveloped by firm-controlled tannins and savoury oak.
This big, brooding Petit Verdot will require serious aerating to consume with food in its youth or will reward long term cellaring under the right conditions."
