Is it any wonder that this wine has slipped into McLaren Vale vernacular as Scrubby White? While the satiatingly mouthfilling mix of grapes may twist tongues, it also offers a rich array of fruit flavours, lead by a whoosh of refitalizing Adelaide Hills fruit, to inspire the most apathetic palate. Crisp, tantalizingly complex and delightfully fresh, Wirra Wirra complete the puzzle and give you something to ponder over a glass of judiciously chilled white, while you wrestle with the words Scrubby, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.
Scrubby Rise vineyard (which is ironically flat and without scrub) supplies the name as well as much of the fruit which goes into this unique cepage. Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are picked whilst still displaying fresh leafy and grassy notes. Grapes are destemmed, crushed and chilled to 5°C, juices are pressed keeping the free run and pressings separate. Juices are cold settled below 5°C for a week and racked from gross lees, warmed to 16°C, inoculated and fermented completely to dry. A combination of traditional vinification techniques are applied throughout the winemaking process to enhance palate texture and infuse complexity.
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw with green tinges. Lifted fresh leaf notes, complemented by tropical hints, melon and lime juice. Bright and lively, the palate launches with lemon zest, peach and apricots before hints of passion and tropical fruit notes lingering. Soft mouthwatering acid leads to a long and textural finish. Drink young while young alongside char grilled chicken and field pea risotto, garnished by freshly grated gruyere.

About the Wirra Wirra Winery
The Wirra Wirra Cellars were built by Robert Strangways Wigley, one of the McLaren Vale's all time characters
Wigley began building at the turn of the century using Dr. A.C. Kelly's plans of a split-level design that his friend Alec Johnston had used to build the Pirramimma winery. Wirra Wirra is an aboriginal name meaning amongst the gums. Born in 1864, Bob Wigley studied Law and Architecture and managed to play cricket for South Australia. His wild pranks as a young man had already made him somewhat of an embarrassment to his family. In 1893 he was prudently sent to rusticate in McLaren Vale. He planted the vineyard in 1894 and made his first wine with Alec Johnston in 1897. By 1901 he was the owner of one of the best wineries and vineyards in the district with 100 acres under vines and 15 acres under currants. Wirra Wirra»
