Wirra Wirra

The late Greg Trott saw many of his dreams realized at Wirra Wirra. Yet one vision eluded him – to build a medieval siege machine, or “trebuchet.” Why?
To use as a catapult of course; showering neighboring wineries with bottles of fine wine. He hoped they would return the favor and make it a show-piece for his beloved McLaren Vale. Since his passing we have fulfilled the dream in his honor.
This wine is part of a range that remembers the pioneering spirit of Trott.
Would he be pleased? Not with the fuss, but certainly with the wine.

Bright and juicy, McLaren Vale Shiraz is sure to bring a smile. Just like Trott.
