Winemaker Notes

Deep burgundy with a scarlet edge in color. Bouquet of ripe blueberries, wild raspberries and plums are followed by nutmeg, earth, and thyme. A fragrant combination of primary fruits, spices, florals, and dried herbs. The palate is dense and plush, the core red fruits and cherry liqueur are wrapped in layers of sweet, musky spice. Waves of silky, sandy-textured tannin finish the wine with an earthy, savory note.

Pair with duck leg confit with white bean cassoulet

About Wirra Wirra Vineyards

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.
