Woodhenge is a monument to ‘big’ ideas and to Greg Trott’s unique vision of what makes Wirra Wirra special and well, a bloody big fence that weighs about 10 tonnes. This wine is a tribute to the region, the grape variety and the foresight of a wine man that, like Woodhenge, typifies the individuality of McLaren Vale.

Expert Reviews

Darkly coloured and jam-packed with blackberry, tar, anise and a lick of dried herbs. Plush and expansive, finely grained tannins hold everything in check. Long, and requiring many years. Rating 95 - Drink by 2028, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2016)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep plum with a bright crimson hue.

Aroma

A vibrant, full spectrum of red, blue and black fruits with an earthy, peaty depth. Layers of vanilla, dark chocolate and oak spices add further rich complexity.

Palate

A dense core of satsuma plums and dark berry fruits layered with spice and leather. The mouth filling fruits are balanced by compact, fine tannins providing a wine of weight, structure and persistence.

Drink

8 - 13 years in appropriate cellaring conditions.

Food Matching

Aged, grain fed porterhouse with sautéed mushrooms and endives.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Wirra Wirra is situated 37 km south of Adelaide in South Australia's famous McLaren Vale wine region. It is an historic site, which was originally built in 1894 and which by 1903 was producing a substantial quantity of wine that was primarily exported to the rest of the British Empire.

Wirra Wirra is an aboriginal name meaning "amongst the gumtrees". It was established by Robert Strangways Wigley, a former state cricketer and well known eccentric. Following his death in 1924 the vineyards were sold by his family and the cellars fell into disuse. It remained that way until 1969 when the site was bought from Vern Sparrow, son of Wigley's foreman Jack Sparrow, by cousins Greg and Roger Trott.

Assisted by Roger and armed with a few old photos and sketches, Greg re-built the derelict Wirra Wirra winery from two remaining walls and some slate fermenting tanks, transforming it into the handsome winery it is today. Trott did this all in his own inimitable style - always passionate, always iconoclastic, always fun and always unique. Trott lived by a simple philosophy; "Never give misery an even break, nor bad wine a second sip. You must be serious about quality, dedicated to your task in life, especially winemaking, but this should all be fun."

After a long illness, Trott passed away in 2005, but his spirit and sense of purpose is alive and well at Wirra Wirra. The winery has built a reputation for its classic McLaren Vale reds and elegant Adelaide Hills whites and has been described by James Halliday as “the best small to medium producer in McLaren vale and up there among the nation’s finest.”

Visitors to the historic ironstone cellars at Wirra Wirra will get a touch of Greg Trott's philosophy which is built around the celebration of life: great food, stimulating conversation, marvellous music, and of course a fine bottle of wine. From the massive post and rail fence, known as “Woodhenge” to the giant Angelus bell that sits atop the winery, Wirra Wirra has discoveries that have helped make it a must-visit destination in the McLaren Vale wine region.
