Wirra Wirra Vineyards Scrubby Rise Sauvignon Blanc 2023 (6 Bottles) Adelaide Hills

$130.00 GST Included


Planted in 1972, the original Scrubby Rise vineyards at Wirra Wirra sit on ancient rocks more than 100,000 years old.

The fact that they are totally flat and contain no “scrub” or bush whatsoever was of more interest to the late Greg Trott, who gave them their dubious name. As one might call a redhead “Bluey” or a tall man “Shorty”, Trott drew on traditional Aussie humour to make the point that we shouldn’t take life too seriously.

Be dedicated to your task he said, but everything else should be fun. That’s a philosophy we aspire to at Wirra Wirra, as we raise a glass of this classic Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc.




Sauvignon Blanc fruit was picked relatively early in the season to display fresh leafy and grassy notes. Grapes were destemmed, crushed and chilled to five degrees on the way to the airbag press.

The wine was then pressed keeping the free run and pressings juice separate in stainless steel vessels. Juice was cold settled in tank at temperatures below five degrees for a week and racked from gross lees.

The clear juice was warmed to 16 degrees and inoculated with yeast to begin the fermentation process. Once the ferment was completely dry and settled, the wine was blended, stabilised and lightly fined before filtration and bottling.
