When the late Greg Trott christened a flat, barren landscape at the front of our winery ‘Scrubby Rise’, he started a theme that things aren’t always as they seem at Wirra Wirra. In keeping with Trott’s laid back Aussie humour, today the vineyard is overlooked by a viewing platform known as ‘The Jetty’, while a well dressed gent in a red boat rows between the vines. The message is not to take life too seriously.

Colour

Brilliant, pale and clear with flashes of green.

Bouquet

Lifted passionfruit and lime with mixed tropical fruits.

Palate

A mouthwatering palate, balancing zesty lime, green apple, pithy grapefruit with sweet passionfruit and tropical notes for a bright, fresh and clean finish.

Terrific quaffer. Scrubby Rise is the entry-level label for standout McLaren Vale winery Wirra Wirra. The vines in the vineyard are now well over 40 years old and produce sauvignon blanc with plenty of vibrancy and kick for easy, everyday drinking. There’s an inviting tropical fruit bouquet that leads on to fresh, zingy palate with some bright acid on the finish. The winemaking team recommends pairing this with an avocado and prawn salad.

Winsor Dobbin, Ciao Magazine

Bright pale straw. The aroma is very delicate and fresh, pleasant and inviting. The palate is quite crisp, taut and dry with lingering lime flavours. A value drop that is clean and bright.
