Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast.

Wirra Wirra sources fruit from a combination of estate vineyards and premium growers at Seaview and McLaren Flat, Whites Valley and Blewitt Springs. Fruit is gently crushed, de-stemmed and vinified at 20C to 28C, pumped over two to four times daily for flavour and colour extraction. Once batches achieve optimal extracts, the ferments are pumped over gently once daily to keep the cap, skins and seeds moist. As juices approach sugar dryness, batches are drained and the remaining skins treated to a basket press. Parcels complete malolactic in barrel and components are assembled, followed by maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads and barriques.
Deep plum with vivid red hues. Aromatic nose of leaf, cedar, aniseed and clove spice. Fragrant varietal lift with bright red fruit aromatics of raspberry and plum. Rich, generous palate full of dark cherries over lingering textural tannins. Oak plays a minor yet complimentary role, supporting with cedary complexity and a structural backbone leading to a long lingering finish.
