Mrs. Wigley (1977-1991) was not the wife of Wirra Wirra founder Bob Wigley, but a particular pussycat that was born at the neighbouring Petrucci residence. Within days her mum had dragged the litter to settle in our open fermenters, and from then on Mrs. Wigley became a permanent feature of the cellars. Raised exclusively on Myponga Cheddar from the cheese board in cellar door, she was black in colour and sported a trimmed tail courtesy of an accident with some Galv and some emergency surgery from Joe Petrucci's pruning snips.
Like its namesake, Mrs Wigley (the Grenache based wine) is at its playful best when young and is the ideal companion for a lazy afternoon in the sun. Serve chilled.
