Wirra Wirra Scrubby Rise Shiraz 750ml
Planted in 1972, the Scrubby Rise vineyards at Wirra Wirra sit on ancient rocks more than 100,000 years old. The fact that they are totally flat and contain no 'scrub' or bush whatsoever was of more interest to the late Greg Trott, who gave them their dubious name. As one might call a redhead 'Bluey' or a tall man 'Shorty', Trott drew on traditional Aussie humour to make the point that we shouldn't take life too seriously. Be dedicated to your task he said, but everything else should be fun. That's a philosophy they aspire to at Wirra Wirra, as they raise a glass of this classic McLaren Vale shiraz.
