A bold, brazen Shiraz sporting 16% alcohol. Dense purple-black in colour, it has a cedary, iodine nose of blackberries. Full-bodied and richly extracted, it offers blackberry and plum flavours with a floral note. Fleshy and opulent, it’s well-balanced with good length.
Dense purple in colour with a cedary, blackcurrant, plum and moist earth nose. Medium- to full-bodied, the wine is dry, fruity and voluptuous with a lively spine of acidity and a firm finish.
Fleshy, ripe-berry fruit on the nose with good depth of blackberry and raspberry flavours in a well-balanced, medium-weight package, finishing with a splash of chocolate on the well-integrated finish.
No prizes if can guess which country this wine comes from. Deep purple-ruby in colour with a bouquet of blackberries, white pepper and an herbal note. Full-bodied and dry, it’s fruit-driven and not very complex but juicy and flavourful. Ideal for red-meat BBQs or whatever’s in your tucker bag, mate.
Clear, medium-deep mature garnet. Medium-intensity nose of blueberry jam, raisin pie, violets and some leather and varnish notes. On the palate, the cherry fruit still tastes fresh but a bit jammy. Nicely balanced but teetering on the edge of old age. Drink up.
Rubber and tar filters throughout this old-school Aussie Shiraz, labelled solely as Wine of Australia. Thick blackcurrants, cassis and black plum are all lifted by a sell [swell?] of acidity, but plummet to a shorter finish. Tannins are a bit gummy, and the reductive note grows the longer it is in the glass. Try with burgers for best results.
Ripe, sweeter blackberry, sarsaparilla and cassis are pierced with peppery thorns and cushy black berry fruit in this generous, perfumed Petit Verdot, an iconic highlight not just of Pirramimma’s portfolio, but a solid benchmark of PV everywhere. Gritty, tuggy tannins hug the plush black fruit, one streaming along the medium-bodied, velvet-lined palate and shown through a filter of anise and violets, and finishing with dark chocolate.
