Chook Block was planted in 1960 on Nocowie Vineyard immediately behind the Wirra Wirra wineworks. The terroir is fortuitous and unique, sandy topsoils over subsurface sandy loam with red brown impervious clay and patches of limestone. Fruit is cold soaked for five days to extract maximum colour without excess alcohol. Ferments are hand plunged and tasted twice daily. At the required level of dryness and extraction, juices are basket pressed until the first sign of tannin hardness. Batches are transferred to a high proportion of new French oak barrriques for completion of malolactic. Barrels are rack and returned every four months throughout twenty one months of maturation.
Dense plum hue with garnet rim. Fresh boysenberries, blackberries and plum, interlaced with sweet cedar, bitter chocolates and licorice, tar and earthy notes. The palate is mouth filling with rich satsuma plums and blackberry fruits, dark chocolate and aniseed. Rich and brooding, balanced by mouth watering savoury tannins and fine cedary oak.
