Quick Overview

“One of the best value reds around, Church Block is a Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot blend and it is one of the cleverest wines in Australia on account of its seamless chassis and heavenly aroma. Drink it with the Beef pie with parsnip recipe and your palate will somersault with joy.”
- Daily Mail, Matthew Jukes - Feb 2016.

Details

Wirra Wirra sources fruit from a combination of owned vineyards and premium McLaren Vale growers. The fruit for Church Block was sourced from Whites Valley, McLaren Flat, Blewitt Springs and Seaview sub regions.

Combination of French (70%) and American (30%) oak including barriques and hogsheads, of which 10% are new.

2014 Vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon 51%, Shiraz 37%, Merlot 12%

Deep plum with vivid red hues. Fragrant cassis and dark plum with a cabernet leafy note. The dark fruits are complexed with chocolate, tobacco and cedar notes.

Rich red and black fruits fill the mouth. Raspberry, red currant and plum fruits are balanced with fine sandy tannins and cedar oak.

This medium to full bodied wine has a lovely balance and style in true Church Block character.

Fruit was gently crushed and destemmed and then fermenta on commenced with must temperatures between 20-22ºC. Once yeast became more active, temperatures were maintained between 25-28ºC. In general, ferments were pumped over or plunged two to four times daily to assist in sufficient flavour and colour extraction. Towards the end of fermentation and once parcels displayed desired flavour and tannin extraction, the fermenter was drained and the remaining skins were pressed via tank or basket press. Wines completed malolactic fermentation in tank or barrel as individual vineyard parcels with some blending within varietal groups before further oak maturation.
