At Wirra Wirra things are not always what they seem, like our twist on an Australian classic - shiraz and cabernet sauvignon - with a splash of petit verdot. Two beauties and an ugly duckling? It's well known that Shiraz and Cabernet make great bedfellows, but in a rare case of "three's company", the Bordeaux blender Petit Verdot takes this wine to another level, with its vibrant colour and rich fragrance. All three varietals conspire to achieve the balance, elegance and structure of this classic Wirra Wirra red, complemented by 12 months in American and French oak.
Best enjoyed with good friends and great food.

Winery Tasting Notes
Shiraz 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 45%, Petit Verdot 5%
Brilliant deep crimson hue with vibrant purple edge.
Lifted violet and leafy notes with fresh raspberry, cherry and blackberry fruits. Subtle cedary oak and spice adding a further
layer of interest.
Bright and juicy; filled with raspberry, plum and blackberry fruits. The palate is fleshy and is supported by mouth-watering
acidity and soft fruit tannins resulting in a wine with persistent flavour and depth.
Wagyu steak sandwich with cornichons.
Now and up to 5 years from vintage.
