RSW stands for Robert Strangways Wrigley, a noted South Australian gent who is credited with setting up Wirra Wirra in 1894. Suitably, this iconic Shiraz has richness and power and weight, a very lovely modern McLaren Vale Shiraz in the best possible form.
Wirra Wirra nailed the great vintage with this wine, its crimson colour introducing a fabulously expressive bouquet and medium-bodied palate reflecting all that is great about McLaren Vale shiraz in a top vintage. No matter what fruit quality you enjoy, you will find it in this wine, so complex is the flavour rainbow; the same can be said of the influence of terroir, with dark chocolate and licorice undertones, oak operating to yet further enhance all of these characters.
