White Label is a McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon of the highest eminence, having been nominated for the George Mackey Memorial Trophy, awarded to the most outstanding Australian export. Crafted from fruit grown to some of the oldest vines at Pirramimma and McLaren Vale, it has twice claimed Gold in San Francisco and competed well against a formidable host of distinguished growths at the prestigious London International. A powerful yet, elegant wine framed by robust tannins, Pirramimma recommends a double decant if opened for early drinking.
In 1892 Alexander Johnston purchased ninety seven hectares of rich farmland southeast of the fledgling village at McLaren Vale. Today, Pirramimma's mature vineyards consistently yield the region's finest Cabernet. The comerstone philosophy is to produce estate wines from home grown fruit, ensuring that the highest quality standards are met. Harvested from vines grown on original root stock, grapes are picked throughout the cool of night from the Pethick Road block, a well balanced terroir planted in 1967. Primary fermentation in the original Pirramimma concrete vats is followed by twenty four months in a selection of new and prior use American and French oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES
Deep black/ brick red colour. Lifted blackcurrants, violets and mint dominate the bouquet, bramble notes and hints of mocha oak. The palate shows intense briar and blackberry, red currant and black cherry flavours over hints of quince and structured, toasty oak. A lingering, currant and blackberry filled finish, on a length of malleable, licorice tannins. Match to the finest beef or gourmandise game.

About Pirramimma Winery
Pirramimma was founded by Alexander Campbell Johnston in 1892 and has been owned and operated by the Johnston family ever since
The Johnston family arrived in South Australia in 1839 and in 1892 Alexander, the tenth of thirteen children, purchased 97 hectares of rich farmland southeast of the then fledgling village of McLaren Vale. He named his land Pirramimma, an Aboriginal phrase meaning 'the moon and the stars' Pirramimma»
