Wirra Wirra Church Block 2014

A blend of Cab Sauv (51%), Shiraz (37%) and Merlot (12%) - spends 18 months in oak, 70% French and 30% American.

Heady, swirling aromatic mix on show here - smells powerful: deep, dark fruit - a little red jostling for position; it's more damson/mulberry at this stage, oak, a little chocolate, savoury/seasoning. 

Full bodied, sweet fruit emanating, a little dusting of bitter cocoa, powdery tannin; touch of acid for balance - composed. 

Finishes powerfully: surge of fruit and toasty oak and drying tannin. Still feels quite tight at this stage. Drinks better with some time 89+ 

Tasted on: Tuesday 12th April, a Root to Flower day
