Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz 2007

Wirra Wirra’s RSW Shiraz is named after Robert Strangways Wigley, which has to be one of the best names ever. Old Strangways played cricket for South Australia … which got me thinking about my own cricketing career. In my junior years I spent about seven years behind the stumps. Wicket keeper and opening batsman. Think of me as the Adam Gilchrist of junior Melbourne western suburbs cricket if you like – I’m not fussed. Anyway, in all those years, I reckon I only took two catches. As a wicket keeper. Total. And yet for the life of me, I can’t remember dropping any. My conclusion … the bowlers I was keeping to, pretty much never caught the outside edge.

I digress.
