Wirra Wirra vineyards established itself as one of Australia’s most recognisable and leading wineries under the watchful eye of the late Greg Trott. Trott, who sadly passed away in 2005, and his cousin Roger rebuilt the winery in 1969 from the remnants of two walls and some slate fermenting tanks. Today Wirra Wirra Vineyards has developed a reputation for intense, beautifully crafted red wines and expressive fine whites.
Deep plum in colour with vivid red hues. Fragrant cassis and dark plum with a cabernet leafy note. The dark fruits are complexed with chocolate, tobacco and cedar notes. Rich red and black fruits fill the mouth. Raspberry, red currant and plum fruits are balanced with fine sandy tannins and cedar oak. This medium to full bodied wine shows a lovely balance and style in true Church Block character.
A 46/42/12% blend matured for 18 months in French and American oak satisfies all the criteria for a blend such as this: bright colour and fresh black and red fruits undaunted by the extended time in barrel, and satisfying ripe tannins. And a gold-plated bargain. Drink to: 2039; Price: $22.00; Date Tasted: Aug 2021; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 94 Points, Special Value Star & Top 100 Wines for 2021; James Halliday Wine Companion
