2017 Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz McLaren Vale – This wine takes its name from Robert Strangways Wigley, a noted South Australian eccentric and state cricketer who established Wirra Wirra back in 1894.
The bouquet has bright exuberant aromatics of spice, tilled earth, ripe red fruits and hints of cedar and sandalwood.
The palate flows into a brooding, powerful core of earth and dark chocolate, underwritten by the darker, more savoury notes of grilled meats, wood smoke and graphite. Structurally quite shy initially but finishing savoury and with firm fine tannin structure providing wonderful length and textural intrigue.
Will age gracefully for 12-16 years in appropriate cellaring conditions.
