- 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.
Fresh white peach and nectarine aromatics are complemented by notes of brioche and
lemon curd. Freshly roasted nuts and a little flintiness alongside some biscuity, charry oak
character add complexity.
Bright nectarine and freshly squeezed lemons run the length of the palate. Primary fruit is
supported by toasted cedar and cinnamon, with a lovely fine, creamy texture from time on
lees in barrel.
