Other Reds: Pirramimma McLaren Vale  Katunga GTS 2014
 

GTS is a unique blend of Grenache, Tannat and Shiraz.

Aroma/Palate

It imparts violets, fejoia and stewed quince on the bouquet, with the palate delivering sage, anise and cigar box flavours, whilst the Shiraz which was French oak matured, adds chocolate, Satsuma plum and pepper in addition to backbone and length of flavour.

Food Matching

Please double decant & enjoy with ox- tail, paella, chateaubriand, schweinshaxe, soft blue vein cheese or a rich dish.

Winemaking Notes

The Grenache component which provides the sweet front palate was matured in older oak barriques to maintain fresh varietal characters of rose petal, raspberry and subtle spice. The famously tannic Tannat which supplies the power and weight in the middle, was seasoned in 2 year old American hogshead.

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.
