Alcohol Level:
When the Wirra Wirra tribe built a viewing platform to take in the majestic outlook over our Scrubby Rise vineyard, it was soon christened The Jetty. The fact this structure overlooks sedentary vines and not a raging sea seemed somehow appropriate given Greg Trott’s decision all those years ago to name a flat, barren landscape Scrubby Rise. Colour Deep plum with a bright crimson edge. Bouquet Bright, ripe raspberry and sweet mulberry fruits, laced with fragrant cabernet leaf and dried herbs. Palate Juicy red berries, ripe blue and black fruits as well as blood plum richness. The generous fleshy fruits are supported by supple tannins and provide a wine with great flavour, freshness and balance. Food Pairing Lamb shoulder with Mediterranean spices, roast zucchini, squash and capsicum.
Wirra Wirra
Wirra Wirra Vineyards was originally established in 1984 by South Australian eccentric cricketer Robert Strangways Wigley. The winery prospered in its early days, producing many wines including a much acclaimed Shiraz, which was exported to England and the Empire until his death in 1925.The winery ran into disrepair and was eventually abandoned. In 1969 under the watchful eye of the late Greg Trott and his first-cousin Roger, the winery was rebuilt from the remnants of two walls and some slate fermenting tanks.
