Church Block was the first wine the late Greg Trott produced under the Wirra Wirra label back in 1972. He took the name from one of the original vineyards, which runs next to the small Bethany church, established in 1854, across the road from Wirra Wirra’s century old ironstone cellars. Over four decades, the Church Block label has become not only a favourite at home in Australia, but one in New Zealand also.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot grown in McLaren Vale; Church Block has a succulent core of ripe cassis and black fruits which fills the mouth and are balanced with subtle spicy oak characters and velvety tannins. This wine has a wonderful balance of intense rich fruit, fine tannins and refreshing acid structure.
Drink upon release and up to 8+ years from vintage.
