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.
Deep plum with a scarlet edge.
A complex nose that displays the instant appeal and fragrances of shiraz and merlot, but is
truly driven by the lifted cassis, blackberry and leaf of cabernet. Dried thyme, sandalwood,
cedary oak and earth follow to add layers of interest.
The palate rewards instantly, packed with bright berries, dark cherries and generous, deep
plum fruits. This fruit sweetness combines with dark chocolate, mocha notes and supple,
fine grained tannins to build a full and even palate.
- Food Pairing
