Wirra Wirra ‘Church Block’ McLaren Vale Cabernet/Shiraz/Merlot 2015

Blended Red from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 18-Jul-2017
Full, very dark, black-hued red colour with slight purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh with bright and primary, aromatic fruit, showing blackcurrants, cassis liqueur, minty herbs and subtle notes of spices and plums. The aromatics possess depth and presence. Full-bodied, the palate has a firmly concentrated heart with deeply packed, bright and vibrant flavours of blackcurrants, blackberries and cassis, with nuances of spice and plums. The fruit is underlined by fine, grainy tannin structure and grip, providing depth and linearity with acid energy and tension. The wine leads to a long, elegant and sustained finish of blackcurrants, cassis and herbs. This is an elegantly concentrated, bright fruited Cabernet/Shiraz blend with lively blackcurrant, cassis and herb flavours with a grainy-structured palate and fresh mouthfeel. Match with herb-marinated lamb and beef dishes, and semi-hard cheeses over the next 7-8+ years. McLaren Vale fruit, a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Shiraz and 12% Merlot, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 70% French and 30% American oak barriques and hogsheads, 10% new. 18.5/20 Jul 2017 RRP $20.99
