Planted in 1972, the Scrubby Rise vineyards at Wirra Wirra sit on ancient rocks more than 100,000 years old. The fact that they are totally flat and contain no “scrub” or bush whatsoever was of more interest to the late Greg Trott, who gave them their dubious name. As one might call a redhead “Bluey” or a tall man “Shorty”, Trott drew on traditional Aussie humour to make the point that we shouldn’t take life too seriously. Be dedicated to your task he said, but everything else should be fun. That’s a philosophy we aspire to at Wirra Wirra, as we raise a glass of this classic McLaren Vale shiraz.
Bright crimson with a fuchsia rim.
Blackberry, plum and raspberry alongside black pepper and a hint of biscuity oak.
Ripe red fruits combine with plush tannins for an exceptionally approachable texture and a rich, mouth-filling quality.
- Food Pairing
Spaghetti meatballs in a tomato and basil sauce, served with parmesan.
