Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz 2010

75.00

The RSW Shiraz boasts a beautifully opaque, inky crimson purple coloring in the glass. Both the bouquet and palate command immediate attention exhibiting a near-perfect paradigm for McLaren Vale Shiraz Perfumed nose with ripe blackberry, licorice and dark plum overlaid with some vanilla and a touch of spice in the background from oak. Full bodied but still smooth, the palate possesses an unbroken stream of rich, ripe black fruit supported by dark chocolate and subtle cedar spice. Velvet smooth tannins, outstanding depth.

Wirra Wirra sources fruit for the RSW Shiraz from a combination of owned vineyards and premium McLaren Vale growers consisting of 40-65 year old vines which are typically low in vigor, producing low yields of intensely flavored fruit. Soils range from red clay and limestone to deep sands over an ironstone base. Matured in 100% French oak, each vineyard block was individually assessed for barrel selection and matured separately for 19 months in predominantly Burgundian oak prior to blending. New oak consisted of 40% of the blend and the balance was a combination of 2–3 year old oak.
