Geoff Johnston studied in France where his strong interest in the unique Petit Verdot Bordeaux varietal first evolved. Johnston's initial trials with the grape have expanded to over ten hectares of mature vines. A pure varietal wine from two Pirramimma estate properties with the focus on a backbone of the best parcels grown to the Katunga estate vineyard, planted exclusively to Petit Verdot vines grafted on own rootstock, grown to sandy loam soils. Grapes are hand pressed and vinified in the original Pirramimma concrete vats before transferring to a selection of French and American oak barriques for completion of ferments, followed by two years maturation.
Deep purple colour. Violets on the bouquet, blackberries and briar, kirsch cherries and cigar box oak. Powerful concentrated palate exhibits spicy plum and forest floor, tangy cherry, hints of mulberry and vanilla bean. The long lingering tannins and subtle oak are beautifully balanced. A wine with great length of flavour and sustained finish.
