Wirra Wirra Church Block

This wine is a beaut, as an Australian might say. Big, bold fruit, with leather and chocolate, this was rich and full-bodied, but with a dry edge to keep things from getting out of hand. Wirra Wirra makes its wine in McLaren Vale in South Australia, and its 2007 Church Block is a sumptuous blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Shiraz (31%) and Merlot (19%). Just look at the booze content - 14.5% - that's not far off port! A couple of bottles of this and one of our group retired early for what appeared to be a very contented doze.

Buy a bottle from Majestic here.
