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.
Deep plum with a crimson hue.
Lifted fruits of raspberry, plum, mulberry and blackberry. The rich fruits are mixed with dried herbs with a violet lift.
The palate is bright and juicy with plum and dark berry fruits. The rich, succulent fruit is framed by fine tannins providing a wine of lovely weight and balance.
- Food Pairing
Braised veal with gnocchi, a vegetable medley and red wine jus.
- Attached Files
Bright red fruit aromatics, with perfumed cherry notes plus a hint of Turkish Delight. The palate has good clarity with excellent juiciness and succulence. The tannins are soft, and the flavours are moreish. A top value, well-made wine from a great producer.
