When the late Greg Trott christened a flat, barren landscape at the front of our winery ‘Scrubby Rise’, he started a theme that things aren’t always as they seem at Wirra Wirra. As one might call a redhead ‘Bluey’ or a tall man ‘Shorty’, Trott drew on tradition Aussie humour to make the point that we shouldn’t take life too seriously. Be dedicated to your task in life he said, but everything else should be fun. That’s a philosophy we aspire to at Wirra Wirra, as we raise a glass of this classic Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc.
Pale straw green color. Ripe aromas of lime, kiwifruit and tangerine sit alongside cooler characters of fennel, cut grass, sugar snap peas and dried herbs. Notes of lime juice, green apple and grapefruit are balanced by crisp acidity. The result is a vibrant and persistent palate that is refreshing as an aperitif or well-matched with food.
