Wirra Wirra Churchblock Red

Is an Australian red wine from the Adelaide region. This red wine is made from Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

Wirra Wirra

The Aboriginal name "Wirra Wirra" means "between the gum trees". The wines of founder Bob Wigley, in particular the syrah, were in great demand in London. The wines have been exported all over the world for more than 100 years. In 1936 most of the vineyards were sold by the family and the wine cellars fell into disuse. In 1969, Greg and Roger bought Trott, the dilapidated winery and some surrounding terrain. The two full cousins brought their own vineyards to the new company and started making wine, helped warmly by the local wine producers.

Wirra Wirra Churchblock Red 

This was the first wine the late Greg Trott produced under the Wirra Wirra label back in 1972. He took the name from one of the original vineyards, which runs next to the small Bethany Church (Est 1854) across the road from Wirra Wirra’s century old ironstone cellars. Over four decades, the Church Block label has become an Australian favorite.

Colour: Deep plum with a scarlet edge.

Bouquet: A complex nose that displays the instant appeal and fragrances of Shiraz and Merlot, but is truly driven by the lifted cassis, blackberry and leaf of cabernet. Dried thyme, sandalwood, cedary oak and earth follow to add layers of interest.

Palate: The palate rewards instantly, packed with bright berries, dark cherries and generous, deep plum fruits. This fruit sweetness combines with dark chocolate, mocha notes and supple, fine grained tannins to build a full and even palate.
