Overview of the Wine
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. As with all subsequent Trott endeavours, it was the sheer magnitude and unlikeliness of the project that made it so attractive.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The bouquet is defined by fragrant red and black cabernet fruits with rich plums, surrounded by leaf and polished leather The palate is bright red and black fruits are framed by fine sandy tannins and fresh cedar. The wine displays a lovely brightness and generosity of fruit that is the hallmark of McLaren Vale, with the supporting tannin structure to reward medium-term aging.

92 Points - James Suckling 
This is in good shape in this vintage with very clear cabernet cassis and blackcurrant aromas, as well as leaves and red fruit. The palate has a very evenly paced build with layers of tannin and a smooth, juicy and deep finish. A blend of 52% cabernet sauvignon 39% shiraz and 9% merlot.
