RRP: $17.00
12 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
What better way to get into the swing of things this summer than with this mixed dozen of fun from Wirra Wirra. In the mix, you'll get the gleeful and fruity Scrubby Rise white, and the sultry and highly glugable Scrubby Rise red. Perfect for post-Holiday get-togethers with friends or work colleagues.

Please note: Occasionally we may substitute some wines with a wine of equal value.

Wirra Wirra Awards and Accolades


I’ve always been fond of this snappy little white blend from Wirra Wirra. Keeps the punters happy and puts a smile on my face. Sometimes you can have it all. The Savy is the first thing to hit you aromatically. A brisk slap of slightly under-ripe passionfruit, grass and herbs. The palate is where it really comes through though. Those tropical notes are echoed, with pine lime stretching its legs on the Semillon dominant finish. Viognier adds some palate weight, spice and mouth-filling pleasure in the form of peach and apricots, lifting this above the heights of another sprightly white quaffer.

A lively, fresh and perky thing of clean, crunchy citrus fruits, lifted with hints of guava and passionfruit. It's zesty and crisp, holding its youthful vivacity impeccably on a refreshingly dry finish. A great value lunchtime quaffer.

Light straw-green; the sauvignon blanc component, possibly from the Adelaide Hills, commands attention with its zesty grapefruit nuances, alongside stone fruit and passionfruit, citrussy acidity to close.

2011 Wirra Wirra Scrubby Rise Shiraz Cabernet Petit Verdot

RRP: $17.00
6 x 750ml Bottles
Winemaker's Note
Appearance: Brilliant deep crimson hue with vibrant purple edge.

Nose: Lifted violet and leafy notes with fresh raspberry, cherry and blackberry fruits. Subtle cedary oak and spice adding a further layer of interest.

Palate: Bright and juicy; filled with raspberry, plum and blackberry fruits. The palate is fleshy and is supported by mouth-watering acidity and soft fruit tannins resulting in a wine with persistent flavour and depth.

Food: Wagyu steak sandwich with cornichons.

Wirra Wirra Awards and Accolades

The petit verdot adds some floral characters to the dark berry and cherry cabernet and shiraz , with just a splash of toasty oak in the mix and fine tannins on the finish. It's a good match with almost any red meats, or beef or lamb-based gourmet sausages. 90/100 Mike Frost, Courier Mail
Other Reviews
One assumes the small boat being rowed along the top of a vine row does not indicate a macabre sense of humour, for this is another success for the vintage, with sweet red and black fruits embedded in the chocolate running through the length of the palate. Adelicious wine for early drinking.
