The late Greg Trott saw many of his dreams realised at Wirra Wirra. Yet one vision eluded him – to build a medieval siege machine, or trebuchet. Why? To use as a catapult to bomb neighbouring wineries with bottles of wine of course. This wine is part of a range, The RGT Collection which remembers the Pioneering spirit of Richard Gregory Trott.

Colour

Bright and clear crimson with a fuchsia rim.

Bouquet

A strong core of primary fruit shows bright raspberry and sour cherry alongside sweet blueberry and mulberry. Fresh fruits are countered with dried botanicals - fennel seed and thyme, black pepper, sweet cinnamon and musky white florals.

Palate

The silky texture and juicy mid-palate sweetness of mixed berries, plums and spice is supple and immediately approachable. Fruit sweetness is balanced with tart cherry flavour and bright acidity, building to an appealing finish with rounded, grainy tannins.

Professional Reviews

Bright raspberries and red plums with some darker blackberries, leading to a fleshy, plump and pleasure-filled palate. Attractive freshness. Screw cap. Drink now.
