- Other Info:
- Wirra Wirra Vineyards was originally established in 1894 by known South Australian eccentric and 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 1926. The winery ran into disrepair and was eventually abandoned. In 1969 under the watchful eye of the late Greg Trott and his cousin Roger, the winery was rebuilt from the remnants of two walls and some slate fermenting tanks.
'Simply the best BBQ wine in our range at the moment! Bold yet elegant, soft, supple and balanced.
Produced from free standing bush vines in the baking MacLaren Vale sun, this wine truly shows its sense of place.' (Aljoscha Wright - Buyer).
- "Aromas of dark fruit and light jam with tea undertones. Medium to full body, soft and silky tannins and a savory finish. Tailored and structured. Fun to drink now. Will improve with age."
