AMATOR means ‘for love, not return’ and perfectly describes Wirra Wirra’s motivation over a decade ago to convert our vineyards to biodynamic farming practices, free from the use of herbicides and pesticides. The AMATOR range reflects the fruits of our labour with wines drawn from our b-d certified blocks at McMurtrie Rd. This single vineyard shiraz is a very limited offering exclusive to our cellar door and online customers.

Colour

Deep plum with a vibrant scarlet-purple rim.

Bouquet

Rich with plums, blackberries and liqueur raspberry, the nose sets deep fruits alongside perfumed violets and musky florals with a background of seasoned French oak.

Palate

The palate shows a spectrum of ripe and dark fruits, from blueberry to plum, blackberry and dark cherry. Bright, juicy, plush and deep, the generous fruit is supported by some sweet, spicy cedar, dark chocolate and supple tannin.
