From Wirra Wirra’s own biodynamically farmed Chook Block Vineyard planted in 1960, there comes from time to time very small parcels of exceptionally intense, high quality fruit. In the very best years this fruit is vinified separately to create wines of unique interest, they are released in tiny quantities under this simple and unpretentious label… Chook Block. Initially crafted from the great 1998 vintage, Chook Block takes its name from one of Greg Trott’s original broiler chicken sheds, adjacent to the vineyard itself. A deep ruby with paler crimson tones. Once again the Chook Block has created a wonderful harmony of depth and lightness of touch. Great fruit concentration of plum compote and fresh redcurrant are layered with star anise, a hint of tobacco, and a stony baked earth character that is a hallmark of the vineyard. Super-fine and velvety tannins provide a framework that runs evenly the length of the palate to a remarkably long and refined finish.
