Named in honour of Pirramimma founder Alexander Campbell Johnston, the 2007 ACJ is only the second release of this limited production wine, the first being the Gold Medal winning 2004 vintage. Only produced if varietal parcels display outstanding character, the barrel select 2007 ACJ was limited to 500 dozen.

The 2007 Pirramimma ACJ has won the coveted The May de Lencquesaing Trophy for Blended Red Wine Sponsored by Glenelley at the prestigious 2011 International Wine and Spirit Competition.  The wine, a unique blend of Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon, has won this fantastic award above all other blended wines from across the globe.

“With 120 years of winemaking history, it is a great achievement from the team to win any Trophy in such a competitive industry, but to win a major Trophy at one of the Worlds most important Wine Competitions is a tremendous result for McLaren Vale and Pirramimma”  Geoff said.

Geoff Johnston, is ACJ’s grandson and current Pirramimma custodian.
