In 1972, cousins Greg and Roger Trott produced a dry red wine from grapes grown on Greg’s vineyard adjacent to the small Bethany Chapel opposite Wirra Wirra. This blend of grenache and shiraz became the first ‘Church Block’. Taking on advice from friends and mentors, Trott evolved Church Block over the years to its popular signature blend of cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and merlot. Yet still there were those who bemoaned the loss of the original blend of grenache and shiraz. So at various times over the years, when the planets have aligned, we have re-created the grenache shiraz offering and released it under the imaginatively titled ‘Original Blend’ moniker. With a look and feel harking back to simpler times, this latest release of Original Blend Grenache Shiraz is limited in number, but not imagination.
Vivid crimson with vibrant deep red hue.
Freshly squeezed cherries and raspberries with rose petals, musk, dry herbs and ginger spice.
The palate is succulent with rich red fruits including cherry, raspberry and blueberry. The wine has an attractive medium bodied nature, with plush savoury tannins that balance the rich fruits and spice.
- Food Pairing
Slow cooked shredded pork tacos.

Very impressive grenache aromas leading the way with bright raspberries and a gently leafy, herbal thread. The palate has impressive elegance and lightness. Gently tangy, juicy and smooth. A soulful and approachable red. Drink now.
