    Winemaker Notes

    Colour: Brilliant plum/purple with crimson hues.

    Bouquet: Lifted, violets & blackberries on the nose with loads of star anise & cinnamon overtones. "Worcestershire sauce", savoury, & smoked ham character. Along with slight licorice/molasses & cinnamon spice.

    Palate: A structured, full palate with fine fruit tannins & smooth rounded edges. Damson plums & very refined mocha/coffee characteristics from the Shiraz & a subtle herbal note from the Cabernet Sauvignon with a long finish & fine oak tannins.

    General: The 1999 Church Block has the elegant structure of Cabernet Sauvignon complemented by approachable Merlot & the depth & warmth of Shiraz, all typical of Church Block.

    Serve: At room temperature 15ºc, with most foods especially pastas, roasted & grilled meat dishes & strong cheeses.

    Technical Notes: Alc / Vol: 14.0%

    Wirra Wirra, Australia
    Wirra Wirra McLaren Vale Vineyard Winery Image

    Wirra Wirra Vineyards was originally established in 1894 by known South Australian eccentric and cricketer Robert Strangways Wigley. The winery prospered in its early days, producing many wines including a much acclaimed Shiraz, which was exported to England and the Empire until his death in 1926. The winery ran into disrepair and was eventually abandoned. In 1969 under the watchful eye of the late Greg Trott and his cousin Roger, the winery was rebuilt from the remnants of two walls and some slate fermenting tanks. As with all subsequent Trott endeavours, it was the sheer magnitude and unlikeliness of the project that made it so attractive.
