Wirra Wirra 'Church Block' Cabernet Shiraz Merlot 2018

$22.00
The Cabernet shines in this one. Dark fruits, greenery, a hint of stonefruit spice and cedar all on the go. It’s reasonably powerful and quite long and finishes with ripe, waxy tannins you can almost chew on. Lovely for drinking now and will mellow over the next 5-8 years.

Matt and Daz have a quick look at the Wirra Wirra 'Church Block' Cabernet Shiraz Merlot 2018...

From a fabulous cellar door to a working trebuchet (g'head, Google it), Wirra Wirra is a storied McLaren Vale winery, brought back to life from it's 1894-1925 past life by Greg Trott and his cousin Roger. Paul Smith is their current winemaker and their main motto? ‘Don’t #@^% it up!’ It is known to be kooky, outrageous and indefatigable in pursuit of great wine. In town? Go there.

Rescued from utter decrepitude in 1969 by Greg and Roger Trott, the winery actually originated in 1894. It was successful under the stewardship
