From Wirra Wirra's own Chook Block Vineyard planted in 1967, there comes from time to time very small parcels of unusually 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, now situated alone, adjacent to the vineyard itself. Total Production is yet to exceed 300 dozen. To date Wirra Wirra have produced three acclaimed vintages - 1998, 2002 and 2006 - with rumours of a 2010 release in 2013 yet to be confimed.
Other reviews... Dark and brooding with mocha, fruitcake and a seasoning of charry oak; the medium-bodied palate is loaded with sweet fruit and oak. Not a blockbuster, rather plenty of finesse. 94 points
