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 four decades, the Church Block label has become an Australian favourite.
The nose offers red and black currants, plums, as well as leaf and briary notes. Gentle oak influence includes cedar, toast and cocoa.
There is a depth of plush fruit richness expressed as cassis, red berries, and plums, balanced by savoury, cedary and dark chocolate characters. Fine tannins provide a framework that brings a fresh, chewy satisfaction.
