Wirra Wirra Chardonnay Scrubby Rise Adelaide Hills 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Shiraz, 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 45%, Petit Verdot 5% At first dominated by herbaceous and curranty cabernet on the nose this quickly shows some Shriaz spice and a sheen of toasty vanilla laden oak on the rather robust nose. Smooth and bright on entry, you feel the oak, nutty and toasty, early on the palate then the wine gains a bit of definition with blueberry and plum fruit on the midpalate and a fine vein of something vaguely violet driven and peppery on the back end, almost a little arugula like. The finish is a touch dusty and fairly long with more of a plummy and spicy Shiraz character. This marries the two varieties well, creating nice synergies of texture and layering of flavors. It turns out feeling a bit like a Petite Sirah rich Zin in some ways. 87pts
