Wirra Wirra The 12th Man Chardonnay is a white wine from the renowned Australian winery Wirra Wirra. The name "The 12th Man" refers to a sports team's fans or supporters, often referred to as the "twelfth man" because of their enthusiasm and support for the team.
This Chardonnay is a single-varietal wine, meaning it is made exclusively from the Chardonnay grape, one of the world's best known and most loved white grape varieties.
When poured, Wirra Wirra The 12th Man Chardonnay has a clear and light yellow color. On the nose, the wine reveals seductive aromas of ripe peaches, juicy nectarines and citrus fruits, along with subtle notes of tropical fruits and a hint of vanilla. These aromas are the result of the combination of ripe fruit and the use of oak during the aging process.
On the tongue, the Chardonnay presents itself with a medium to full body and a soft texture. The taste is rich and complex, with the fruity notes of peach and citrus complemented by buttery and creamy elements, typical of Chardonnay wines that have undergone malolactic fermentation and matured in oak barrels.
Wirra Wirra The 12th Man Chardonnay is a versatile wine that can be well chilled and served as an aperitif, but it also goes well with various dishes. It is an excellent companion to grilled fish, chicken dishes, creamy pastas and soft cheeses.

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.
