Mrs Wigley was not the wife of Wirra Wirra founder Robert Strangways Wigley, but a particular pussycat
who was born at the neighbouring Petrucci residence. Within days her mum had dragged the litter to
settle in our open fermenters, and from then on Mrs Wigley became a permanent feature of the cellars.
Pale rose pink with a bright, clear rim
Enticing wild strawberries and fresh raspberries, fragrant with sweet musk, rose petal and Turkish delight.
Sweet, juicy and mouth-watering fruits fill the palate - poached strawberries and guava and a crisp, refreshing finish revealing more musk, dried herb and some sweet spice.
- Food Pairing
From Spanish tapas and freshly grilled seafood, to mild curries and Asian dishes with a touch of spice.

A really fruity and fun rosé showing notes of red apples, white roses and cherry lipstick. Medium to full body, some fresh acidity and a fruity finish. Drink now.
Mrs Wigley is surely the nation's favourite blush pink kitty! She leads with delicate red Berry aromatics, nothing a hundred other Rosés don't - adding a toffee-apple charm over the top, with something like a musky/dusky addition to round out the profile. Clean and fresh entry, the faintest of Berry fruit sweetness greeting you on initial taste, before a long draw of acidity pulling the flavours inherent in the wine, long and with a chalky dryness.
Colour in your glass is one of the great attractions of rosé – and there are so many tones it’s hard to tell what will result in the tasting. This all-grenache based wine shows a bit more glossy, lolly-pink than many in the pale class, and with this comes quite a lifted nose with vibrant, sassy strawberry/cherry fruit expression with plenty or spice and tang as you taste. It’s not lolly-like in the sipping though, and is puffed with a light powdery feel for persistence and interest.
There’s growing appeal for a pale-style rose and this latest McLaren Vale version, crafted by winemaker Paul Smith from grenache grapes, easily meets the criteria. Lovely fresh sweet fruit flavours roll through aplenty, maintaining rousing palate satisfaction right to the last drop.
