Church Block was the first wine the late Greg Trott produced under the Wirra Wirra label back in 1972. He took the name from one of the original vineyards, which runs next to the small Bethany Church (Est 1854) across the road from Wirra Wirra’s century old ironstone cellars. Over four decades, the Church Block label has become an Australian favourite.

Colour

Deep plum with a scarlet edge.

Bouquet

Defined by fragrant red and black cabernet fruits with rich plums, surrounded by leaf and
polished leather.

Palate

Bright red and black fruits are framed by fine sandy tannins and fresh cedar. The wine
displays a lovely brightness and generosity of fruit that is the hallmark of McLaren Vale, with
the supporting tannin structure to reward medium-term ageing.
