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

Pale straw with green hues.

Bouquet

Fragrant with fresh citrus driven characters including grapefruit, lemon, a squeeze of lime juice and briny notes.

Palate

Bright with white nectarine and lemon zest characters, the palate has a creamy and pithy texture with a fresh finish that invites another sip.

Professional Reviews

Smart wineries go with their strengths. So while McLaren Vale is the source of fruit for Wirra Wirra's red wines, growers in the much cooler Adelaide Hills provide grapes for the winery's whites. This is undoubtedly one of the best-value chardonnays around; fresh, crisp and vibrant with the cool-climate fruit allowed full voice. This is a very new wave chardonnay, none of your big oak or overt lees stirring here. Think lively citrus aromas and flavours; plenty of refreshment and the ability to match with a wide range of cuisines. It was a star with pan-fried whiting fillets.
