Wirra Wirra Original Blend Grenache Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
The topical old world accord of Grenache and Shiraz was the first style of wine to be made after the re-establishment of Wira Wirra in the 1970s. It is occasionally released as a special limited edition when the vagaries of vintage permit, the aim being to construct a likeness of McLaren Vale, as it was decades ago, when the requisite accompaniement to such a wine was meat and three veg. Wirra Wirra Original is equally satisfying today alongside paparadelle and porcini, offal and pistachio ballotine or five spice crackling pork.

The founder of Thomas Hardy & Sons is on the record for praising the founder of Wirra Wirra, as the hardest working man he ever knew. Hand picked parcels of Grenache are sourced from mature vineyards in McLaren Flat, Shiraz is collated from choice blocks at Seaview. Grapes are crushed and destemmed into traditional open top, two tonnes fermenters, gently macerated by hand plunging and pumped over for optimal extractions of flavour, tannin and colour. Components are fermented to dry and basket pressed into a selection of seasoned French oak for barrels for completion of malolactic. Batches are racked off lees and sent to mature nine months in neutral French oak puncheons and barriques.
Vivid crimson, vibrant deep red hue. Fragrant crushed cherries and raspberry nose, complexed by perfumes of dried herb and musk. The palate displays bright Grenache raspberry and rhubarb flavours, supported by fresh acidity and fine silky tannins. A wonderful, medium bodied style of candor and restraint, resolving on a spicy, savoury finish.
