WINERY INFORMATION

Vineyard

Wirra Wirra sources fruit from a combination of owned vineyards and premium McLaren Vale growers. The fruit for Church Block was sourced from Whites Valley, McLaren Flat, Blewitt Springs and Seaview sub regions.

Winemaking

Fruit was gently crushed and destemmed and then fermentation commenced with must temperatures between 20-22ºC. Once yeast became more active, temperatures were maintained between 25-28ºC. In general, ferments were pumped over or plunged two to four times daily to assist in sufficient flavour and colour extraction. Towards the end of fermentation and once parcels displayed desired flavour and tannin extraction, the fermenter was drained and the remaining skins were pressed via tank or basket press. Wines completed malolactic fermentation in tank or barrel as individual vineyard parcels with some blending within varietal groups before further oak maturation.
