Wirra Wirra Catapult Shiraz 2019
Best value Shiraz under $20. Medium to full bodied drink now or put away a dozen for 3-5 years.
Youthful, medium-deep ruby with pale edges. An enticing mix of bright raspberries and blueberries along with darker notes of blackberries, plums and licorice. Scented with violets and cedar. Rich with red and dark fruits, the palate is plush with a rich core. This depth of fruit is supported by soft, grainy tannins, sweet oak tones and waves of spice.
The late Greg Trott saw many of his unusual dreams realised at Wirra Wirra. Yet one vision eluded him - to build a medieval siege machine, or trebuchet. Why? To use as a catapult to bomb neighbouring wineries with bottles of wine of course. This wine is part of a range, the RGT collection which remembers the pioneering spirit of Richard Gregory Trott.
* Price is in any mixed six bottles of wine. Prices may vary in store
