The Wirra Wirra Church Block from McLaren Vale is always a crowd pleaser, and the 2013 doesn’t disappoint. Its good value, fruit forward, everyday drinking. On the nose there is ripe dark fruits, subtle chocolate and roast meats. The herbeacousness from the Cabernet is less prominent than the 2012 Church Block. Even though its Cabernet dominant (50%), with Shiraz (37%) and 13% Merlot.
On the palate the 2013 Church Block has dark ripe fruit (mulberry, boysenberry) leap out and kept in balance with fresh acid zing. Soft chalky tannins would happily match with a broad range of foods. Nice length and warming alcohol.
