Reviews and Ratings

The 2012 vintage of The Church Block is this wine's 40th anniversary having first been made under the Wirra Wirra label in 1972 by the late winemaker Greg Trott. This is a robust red wine blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 16% Merlot grapes. The wine was then aged for 18 months in 70% French and 30% American oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
