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.
Bright and clear crimson with a fuchsia rim.
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.
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.
- Food Pairing
Spiced Porchetta with fennel, rosemary, sage and an Italian green salad.
