Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2011 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: “With its unusually cool, wet weather, the 2011 vintage was tricky in South Australia, but this blend of Cabernet, Shiraz and Merlot is a triumph. Beautifully smooth and rich, with a blackberry theme and a lingering finish, it’s miraculous.”

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 12/04/2014

Background

History

Church Block was the first wine the late Greg Trott produced under the Wirra Wirra label back in 1972. He took the name from one of the original vineyards, which runs next to the small Bethany Church (est. 1854) across the road from Wirra Wirra's century old ironstone cellars.

Regional info

Wirra Wirra Vineyards is situated 3.7km from the township of McLaren Vale in the state of South Australia. Originally settled in 1838, McLaren Vale has become one of Australia's most highly regarded and accessible wine regions, just 45 minutes by car from Adelaide, the state capital. Its Mediterranean climate and proximity to the Gulf St. Vincent provides the region with a unique ability to produce consistent, richly complex and long lived wines from classic grape varieties, in particular that powerhouse of the Australian wine industry, shiraz.
