Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz is a premium red wine from the renowned Australian winery Wirra Wirra.

The RSW Shiraz is a tribute to his dedication to winemaking and his contribution to the wine industry.
Shiraz from the McLaren Vale region, where Wirra Wirra is located, is known for its rich and full character, with deep dark fruit flavors and a distinctive spiciness.
When poured, the Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz has a deep ruby red color, which reflects the concentration of the wine. On the nose, the wine reveals seductive aromas of ripe blackberries, blackcurrants and plums, complemented by notes of black pepper, spices and a hint of vanilla from aging in oak barrels.
On the tongue, this Shiraz presents itself with a full body and ripe tannins. The taste is intense and complex, with the juicy dark fruit notes complemented by spicy and earthy elements, typical of quality Shiraz wines from McLaren Vale.
The Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz is a wine to be enjoyed at room temperature and goes well with grilled red meat, such as ribeye steak, lamb and game dishes. It is also an excellent companion to savory stews and rich pasta dishes.
Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz is an Australian red wine from the Adelaide region. This red wine is made from Syrah grapes.

The Aboriginal name 'Wirra Wirra' means 'among the gum trees'. Founder Bob Wigley's wines, especially from the Syrah grape, were very popular in London. The wines have been exported around the world for over 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 Trott bought the dilapidated winery and some surrounding land. The two first cousins brought their own vineyards into the new company and started making wine, aided by the local wine producers.
McLaren Vale is located in the state of South Australia, a 45-minute drive from the capital Adelaide. It is famous as a culinary paradise full of tasty culinary specialties and great wines. The Mediterranean climate is tempered by the proximity of the Saint Vincent gulf. The summers are warm and the winters are moderate. Precipitation (580-700 mm per year) mainly falls in winter. During the warm season, humidity is low and evaporation is high. Little or no chance of frost during the growing period or rain during harvest. Depending on the type of soil and location, we work without irrigation or with drip irrigation. Wirra Wirra Winery has its own dam and water recycling installation. The vineyards work biodynamically.
