Wirra Wirra Amator Shiraz Cabernet
AMATOR means ‘for love, not return’ and perfectly describes Wirra Wirra’s motivation over a decade ago to convert their vineyards to biodynamic farming practices, free from the use of herbicides and pesticides. The AMATOR range reflects the fruits of their labours with wines drawn from their b-d certified blocks at McMurtrie Road, McLaren Vale, South Australia. The shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon is a very limited offering for Wirra Wirra and Wine Registry members only.
Gorgeously fresh, there is a juicy plum character that for a moment masks the depth of this wine, but the palate catches up. The volume is turned up with generous fruit character and a very textured, long, grainy backbone.
