Alexander Campbell Johnston planted his first small vine cutting in 1892 and today the Johnston family still produce estate grown wine and operate one of Australia’s oldest wineries – Pirramimma.  The word Pirramimma is an Aboriginal phrase meaning “the moon and the stars”.

Winemaking at Pirramimma has been a family affair for well over 100 years and is now in the very capable hands of Geoff Johnston, grandson of the winery’s founder.

Geoff describes this wine like so: "For our inaugural Primitivo, we were looking for a fruit driven, medium bodied style with differing elements to its perceived varietal character.

The wine displays aromas of cranberry, pomegranate, wild strawberry and spicy red currant, with hints of musk. On the palate the wine delivers rich red cherry, toffee apple, spicy plum and Szechuan peppercorns, all complemented by subtle vanillin/cedary oak and a sprinkling of quince paste.
Drink now or until 2026 under right cellaring conditions."
