Wirra Wirra Church Block Cab Shiraz Merlot 2017
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. James Halliday has described Wirra Wirra as "...the best small to medium-sized winery in McLaren Vale and right up there on a national scale."
The Church Block 2016 is a deep plum with a scarlet edge. Defined by fragrant red and black cabernet fruits with rich plums, surrounded by lead and polished leather. Bright red and black fruits are framed by fine sandy tannins and fresh cedar. The wine displays a lovely brightness and generosity of fruit that is the hallmark of McLaren Vale, with the supporting tannin structure to reward medium-term aging.
