Pirramimma Katunga Grenache Blend

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

2007 was a scorching vintage in the Vale, with plenty of heat and minimal rain producing wines that are typically dry and intensely flavours. Those conditions were also ideal for the production of Grenache as witnessed by this full bodied red which has concentrated licorice and red fruit flavours and no shortage of them.

Winemaker's Notes

The parcels were evening picked & fermented in open concrete vats with daily hand plunging. The Grenache component which provides the sweet front palate, was matured in older oak barriques to maintain fresh varietal characters of rose petal, raspberry & subtle spice.

The famously tannic Tannat, which supplies the power & weight in the middle, was seasoned in 2 year old American hogsheads. It imparts violets, fejoia and stewed quince on the bouquet, with the palate delivering sage, anise & cigar box flavours, whilst the Shiraz, which was French Oak matured, adds chocolate , Satsuma plum & pepper in addition to backbone & length of flavour.

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