Intro to Wirra Wirra Church Block –
Wirra Wirra Church Block is a lovely blend of ripe black fruits with cedary notes from a classic Aussie blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot from McLaren Vale in South Australia & named after a vineyard next to the 19th century church at Bethany.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Wirra Wirra Church Block has fresh leafy cassis fruit with cedar and clove spice aromas and on the palate the fragrant Cabernet Sauvignon dominates with bright red fruits and plums and it is rich and generous with plush dark fruits. The red currants, plums and raspberries are balanced by fine savoury tannins and cedary oak and it will age for up to 10 years from vintage.
Wirra Wirra sources fruit from a combination of their own vineyards and premium McLaren Vale growers. Fermentation takes place in tanks and barrels the wines completed malolactic fermentation in tank or barrel as individual vineyard parcels with the wine blended prior to further oak maturation in a combination of French and American oak barriques and hogsheads of which 10% is new oak.
The producer –
Gregg Trott, the original owner had a philosophy was ‘Never give misery an even break, nor bad wine a second sip. You must be serious about quality, dedicated to your task in life, especially winemaking, but this should all be fun.’ And this is followed by the current team.
The Wirra Wirra vineyards are in McLaren Vale in South Australia where the Mediterranean climate is ideal for grape growing producing regionally distinctive wines. They also own vineyards in Adelaide Hills in the Mount Lofty Ranges just East of Adelaide where the altitude enables them to produce elegant cool climate wines with finesse in Lenswood and Piccadilly.
The Wirra Wirra winemaking philosophy is to the let grapes shine and reflect their quality. They are also very environmentally aware and practice sustainable agriculture conserving water, planting 3000 trees and reduced chemical use. Their vineyards near the winery are certified Biodynamic.
