PETIT VERDOT PIRRAMIMMA, McLAREN VALE, AUSTRALIA

Pirramimma was founded by Alexander Campbell Johnston in 1892 and has been owned and operated by the Johnston family ever since. The winery is located just a short distance south of the small township McLaren Vale, South Australia. Researched for eleven years before the release of the first vintage in 1994, the Piramimma Petit Verdot vineyard was the first and is now the largest in Australia.
Piramimma Petit Verdot is an award winning wine from an established Aussie winery. This wine is made of 100% Petit Verdot, a grape that is used traditionally in Bordeaux blend. Full-bodied, rich, harmonious with  black cherry, chocolate, and delicate violet notes on the nose. Palate exhibits spicy blackberry, cherry, Santa Rosa plum, and a long finish. Best matched with a rack of lamb or venison.
