Drink of the Month

Wirra Wirra Churchblock Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

 

Church Block first appeared back in 1972 under the watchful eye of Greg Trott who was taken by one of the original vineyards that ran alongside the small Bethany Church, across the road from Wirra Wirra’s old ironstone cellars. Over the last 4 decades, Church Block has become one of Australia’s favourites with its rich, full-bodied style consisting of swathes of black and blue fruits and a nice, smooth finish that seems to last ever so long for such an affordable red wine.

Region: McLaren Vale
Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) Shiraz (37%) Merlot (13%)
Colour: Deep plum with vivid red hues.
Bouquet: Lifted cassis and leaf with cedar and clove spice.  The fragrant cabernet sauvignon dominates with bright red fruits and plums.
Palate: The palate is rich and generous with plush dark fruits.  The red and black currants, Satsuma plums and raspberries are balanced by fine savoury tannins and cedary oak.
Food Match: Beef-Rib Bourguignon
