Wirra Wirra Scrubby Rise Unoaked Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

No oak, just pure fruit is the theme with this bright and frisky number from Wirra Wirra. Stone fruits and lemons adorn the nose, whilst the palate is light, vibrant and crunchy, with a ripe peachy centre, zippy acidity, and a refreshing, lip-smacking finish. Just the thing for those unexpected guests.

Winemaker's Notes

Pale straw with light green hues. Youthful vibrant nose of lemon zest and white peach flesh with complexing notes of cinnamon, clove spice and citrus blossom. Juicy sweet peach and pear stone fruits flood the palate while lemon and grapefruit support the richer flavours of the stone fruit. Balanced, bright acid supports the fruit resulting in a relaxed juicy palate complimenting the aromatics.

Alc/vol: 13.0%

Wirra Wirra Scrubby Rise Unoaked Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2012 Vintage) says
Scrubby is nothing of the sort. It’s fresh as dew at dawn, crisp, lively and citrus-infused, with a fragrant apple blossom bouquet. A versatile chardonnay with the crunch to capably introduce proceedings and the white peach body to carry through all manner of canape and fusion offerings.

Fresh, fruity, zesty and perfumed, this cool season has manifested a lemon-zest-accented chardonnay that’s ready to step in for a riesling or semillon to kick off any summer lunchtime seafood extravaganza. White lily perfume, spicy pears, fresh lemons and golden delicious apples conspire in a clean and finely structured style.

Deep colour; ripe bouquet of peach and nectarine; plenty of flavour and persistence.

This is soft, round and very easy to drink, with gentle fruitiness and clean, refreshing, crisp acidity to finish.

Matthew Jukes & Tyson Stelzer (2006 Vintage) says
This is one of those wines that people drink because they pretend that they don’t like Unwooded Chardonnay when actually they are totally gaga for it. It’s more exotic than you’d expect and it’s got ample texture and palate weight to pull off this no-woody style. When you’ve got fruit of this quality, you don’t need wood to make it work – and this is the fundamental thing lacking in virtually all other pretenders to this style.
