The junior member of the Wirra Shiraz family. Includes 1% Viognier (which I’m not sure it needs in a warm, ripe vintage).
A bright maroon red coloured Shiraz, this has a much lighter complexion of red fruits in this blend compared to other Wirra Shiraz – less black and inky, more approachable and softly chocolatey. Round and gentle, meaty but bright, there is just a hint of peachiness here which gives everything a slightly slippery edge.
Good drinking and still quite substantial, though just a little slick and fruity for higher points. Will have broad appeal regardless.
