Pirramimma Stock's Hill Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The palate delivers briary blackcurrant, mulberry and chocolate complemented by toasty oak and integrated with hints of mint and tomato, balanced by subtle toasted oak. A rich firmly structured wine with tannin, fruit and oak in harmony.

Pirramimma Stock's Hill Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; reflects the vintage (good) and the region (also good); it has unexpectedly juicy cassis fruit, fine-grained tannins and a dash of regional chocolate. The balance strongly suggests medium-term cellaring will be in order, although it can be enjoyed now. Excellent value.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Cabernet sauvignon doesn't come any better at this price, the blackcurrant fruit making light of the American oak in which it was matured; the tannins are spot on.

Nick Stock (2005 Vintage) says
A handy workhorse cabernet that delivers plenty of fruit and plenty of oak. Straight-shooting coconut and ripe berry fruit aromas are followed with a big mouthful of mocha-infused plums and berries. Tannins jangle away through the finish, but this is about broad brush strokes, not finesse

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2005 Vintage) says
In a modest way, this continues the excellent run of regional cabernets. It tastes of chocolate, raisins and dust -which is just as well, because there's no bull-dust about this wine. It tastes good and clean and is highly drinkable, with a light clutch of chewy tannin. Easy to recommend.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Medium-bodied; an appealing mix of varietal blackcurrant fruit and McLaren Vale regional chocolate; the apparent use of older American oak, however, hasn't helped a potentially very good wine.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Some colour development; savoury, earthy, dark chocolate surrounds to the blackcurrant fruit; not spongy or sweet as are many '03s; good tannins.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Aromatic bouquet; light to medium-bodied spicy, savoury fruit strengthened by attractive ripe tannins; good length; value.
