In 1947, Greg Trott, founder of Wirra Wirra, lost the only watch he ever owned - a gift from his father. From that day forth, Trott never bothered with a time-piece, avoiding the responsibility for such a valuable item. He claimed to tell the time by the sun - a noble, if impractical sentiment. So Trott was notoriously late - hours, even days - for dinners, meetings, flights and gatherings. Usually his charm garnered forgiveness from those kept in wait.

Colour

Brilliant pale straw.

Bouquet

Bright aromas of lemon zest and Granny Smith apple are followed by galangal-like ginger and pepper notes, with a trace of apple blossom.

Palate

A fresh lime juice acidity runs the length of this wine. The lemon zest theme carries through to the palate along with steely and sea-shell, almost saline characters to make you salivate. Super long, fine and elegant with a pinpoint finish.

Professional Reviews

Palish yellow-straw hue, with a very fresh, bright, intense floral and dried herb bouquet, with background lime, lemon notes. Light-bodied, restrained and delicate, with refinement and pot-pourri charm, à la Eden Valley. The finish and follow-through are very dry, savoury and long.

Huon Hooke, The Real Review 90

Alluringly immediate and complete, this is a Riesling that captures the full spectrum of character, from tangy citrus through juicy stone fruits and flamboyant exotics. The line and cut of lemon and lime win out on a long finish, honed by the precision of a cool, late harvest.

Tyson Stelzer, WBM 91
