The late Greg Trott saw many of his dreams realised at Wirra Wirra. Yet one vision eluded him – to build a medieval siege machine, or trebuchet. Why? To use as a catapult to bomb neighbouring wineries with bottles of wine of course. This wine is part of a range, The RGT Collection which remembers the Pioneering spirit of Richard Gregory Trott.

Colour

Bright, medium crimson with ruby edges.

Bouquet

Juicy raspberry, dried thyme, ripe tomatoes and white pepper along with florals and briary notes.

Palate

Bright red and blue fruits along with some leaf, earthy notes, pepper and spice. Extraordinarily plush with supple tannins, there is nevertheless an energy and vibrancy throughout. Despite such generosity of fruit and texture, the wine just manages to remain medium-bodied.

Professional Reviews

There's a deep and fresh feel to this shiraz that has a dark-plum and blackberry core of aromas and flavors, as well as an edge of licorice and tar on the nose. This is concentrated and juicy. Drink or hold.
