  • Wirra Wirra Chardonnay Scrubby Rise Unoaked 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Subtle and complex on the nose with sandy aromas of lime leaves, limes, tangerine and dried apple fruit. Bright, round and a touch sweet in the mouth with flavors of key lime pie and a little sweet underlying apple notes, gaining some pineapple on the backend. Very clean and fresh in the mouth, if a bit simple, and showing just a hint of nutty ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    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.

  • Wirra Wirra Shiraz Rsw Mclaren Vale Rrp68 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Very ripe, matte and moderately oaky on the nose which picks up nuanced red floral, white pepper, herb stem, and, melted licorice notes with air. In the mouth this is smooth and tart, with a big base of wood tannins supporting sour cherry and plum fruit that is simple and direct. The tannins are unobtrusive and the acidity becomes a bit more pr... Read More

  • Wirra Wirra Church Block Mclaren Vale 2010

    Snoothrank:

  • Wirra Wirra Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A bit sweet and chocolaty on the nose, there is a nice core of berry fruit here along with leather, very fresh ginger and nutmeg spice. Medium-bodied and a bit chunky on entry, this feels closed in the mouth though it does exhibit fine balance between the ripe tannins and somewhat soft acidity. The finish is short and clean, again there seems to... Read More
