Halls Gap Vineyard was planted 1969, along the steep eastern slopes and parched rocky crags of Grampians Ranges, at the very beginning of a renaissance in Victorian viticulture. Since early establishment in the 1860s by the noble Houses of Seppelt and Bests, the region had earned the most elite peerage, a provenance of extraordinary red wines, bursting with bramble opulence and lined with limousin tannins.

Wirra Wirra Catapult Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Viognier McLaren Vale South Australia
The late, great Greg Trott, patriarch of Wirra Wirra, saw many of his unusual dreams realised, such as the construction of a cyclopean fence which girts the entrance of the wineworks. One consuming vision however continued to elude him, the building of a medieval siege machine called a trebuchet. Why? To use as a catapult for bombing neighbouring properties with bottles of wine in the hope they would retaliate! A splendid, opulent rendering of Shiraz, brimming with intense fruit, a hint of varietal spice and a touch of Viognier to be different, just like Trotty.

The Catapult style is bright and juicy with textural tannins and plump fruit. A mostly Shiraz wine with a dollop of the aromatic Viognier, grown to superlative sites at Blewitt Springs, McLaren Flat and Seaview. A small inclusion of Viognier is crushed, de-stemmed and cold soaked along with Shiraz for two or three days, extracting maximum colour and flavour without the influence of alcohol. Each ferment is tasted daily throughout vinification. Once the desired level of colour, flavour and tannin are extracted, ferments are pressed into a combination of French oak hogsheads and barriques. Upon completion of malolactic, wines are rack and returned every four months, bottled after a year to fifteen months maturation.
Vivid red, brilliant purple edge. Lifted bouquet of musk, ginger spice and bright blueberry fruits with notes of ripe cherry and raspberry. Touches of cedary oak and some complex pine needle and herbal nuances add to the appeal of the bouquet. Juicy sweet fruit floods the palate with plum and blueberry dominating. The soft silkyness is enhanced by fine tannins, flavoursome with wonderful joie de vivre, a wine of vibrant character.
