Region | McLaren Vale
Varietal | 100% Shiraz
Alcohol | 14 %
Colour | The rich, dark plum centre softens to a bright scarlet, with lovely clarity at the rim.
Nose | Full and luscious waves of fruit and spice bury the nose in a deep, dense perfume. Musky florals, dark plum, red berries, dark chocolate and sweet baking spice create a heady, romatic bouquet.
Palate | A vibrant and textural palate. Ribbons of blue and red berry fruit are tied to deep plums and dark chocolate. Abundant primaries and nuanced, earthy tones are wrapped together in lush velvety fruit tannins, framed and seasoned with fine grained French oak. The finish is savoury, spiced, rich and enduring.
Food Pairing | Beef shin cooked in pomegranate and beetroot juice, alongside thick cut sourdough and a peppery rocket salad.
Story | We named this wine after Robert Strangways Wigley, a noted South Australian eccentric and state cricketer who established Wirra Wirra back in 1894. Each vintage we take pride in producing a flagship shiraz that befits McLaren Vale’s
reputation as a first class producer of this varietal and home to some of the oldest shiraz vines in the world
