Quick Overview

With the soft, approachable fruit balanced by gentle citrus flavours, this is a quite delicious and easy drinking Riesling. Not sweet, but with appealing softness this is perfect drinking now but will live comfortably for at least more two years. At only $15 a bottle this is also great value.

More Views


Pirramimma, which is aboriginal for “the moon and the stars” was first planted in 1892 by Alexander Johnson and his grandson is now in charge. Located south east of the township of McLaren Vale (about 40 km south of Adelaide) Pirramimma is better known for its reds. However it has a wide range of whites made from their own vineyards and this, their entry level Riesling, is fresh, clean and delicious. This very approachable riesling has a bright-pale gold colour with aromas of soft, fresh fruit and a touch of lime. This follows through onto the medium weighted palate where the soft fruit shows a touch of quince freshened up nicely by gentle lime-flavoured acidity. Supple, smooth and refreshing, this is great value at only $15 and can certainly be enjoyed over the next two or three years if required.
