Like its namesake, Mrs Wigley (the Grenache based wine) is at its playful best when young and is the ideal companion for a lazy afternoon in the sun. Serve chilled.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant crimson and raspberry red.
Lifted perfumed nose of freshly picked red fruits of raspberries, blackberries and strawberry cream. Background notes of musk, leaf and wet stone.
Bright juicy flavours of watermelon flesh & cranberry juice dominate the palate. Fresh sweet acidity carries the flavour with just a hint of tannin influence & natural retained sweetness. A balanced & mouth watering rosé suited to a range of cuisines.
Drink young and fresh up to two years. Seafood paella with saffron and preserved lemons.
Mrs. Wigley (1977-1991) was not the wife of Wirra Wirra founder Bob Wigley, but a particular pussycat that was born at the neighbouring Petrucci residence. Within days her mum had dragged the litter to settle in our open fermenters, and from then on Mrs. Wigley became a permanent feature of the cellars. Raised exclusively on Myponga Cheddar from the cheese board in cellar door, she was black in colour and sported a trimmed tail courtesy of an accident with some Galv and some emergency surgery from Joe Petrucci's pruning snips.
