"94 points. A 46/42/12% blend matured for 18 months in French and American oak satisfies all the criteria for a blend such as this: bright colour and fresh black and red fruits, undaunted by the extended time in barrel, and satisfying ripe tannins. And a gold-plated bargain." James Halliday (James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion)

Church Block was the first wine the late Greg Trott produced under the Wirra Wirra label back in 1972. He took the name from one of the original vineyards, which runs next to the small Bethany Church (est. 1854) across the road from Wirra Wirra’s century old ironstone cellars. Over five decades, the Church Block label has become an Australian favourite.

Sweet and fragrant red currants, dark cherries and blackberries sit comfortably with aromas of dark chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg. Rosemary and autumn leaf characters bring a savoury element, as do barrel influences of vanilla pod, cedar, and toasted oak.

On the palate, blood plums, cranberry and liquorice combine with polished tannins to give a supple, even mouthfeel with a fine-grained finish. A vibrant line runs the length of the palate, balanced by richer elements as of roasted meats, burnt butter and sage. This classic example of the blend achieves harmony and easy approachability.

Wirra Wirra Church Block

Remarkable value but if you want the best from it, let it breathe overnight. Then you will see it at it's best - which is very good indeed in this price bracket!
