Description

Willunga 100 Grenache Rose

Willunga 100 Grenache Rose has a pretty nose full of strawberries, cherries and subtle rose petal aromatics. On the palate the wine has a lovely savoury tannin profile and crisp drying acid which gives it great length.

Willunga 100 is in McLaren Vale, south of Adelaide.

The vineyard comprises of 60 year old bush vines which are hand-picked. The climate of McLaren Vale is often compared to that of the Mediterranean, warm sunny days, with sea breeze influences from the nearby Gulf St Vincent. These warm days in union with the cooling maritime evening changes are perfect for ripening the grapes whilst maintaining a crisp, clean acid structure.

Their aim with this Rosé is to produce, light colour, dry and savoury with crisp acidity. The fruit is hand-picked, and then gently whole bunch pressed and left to drain in the press for 24 hours. We are careful not to gain too much colour extraction as we want to keep it as pale as possible. The juice is settled, racked and then fermented using a more neutral yeast strain. It is then lightly fined, filtered and put into bottle as soon as possible.

Winemaker Mike Farmilo joined the team as head winemaker in 2013 and is supported by Tim James. Together they aim to produce unique and distinctive wines which capture the essence of the region. They use modern equipment alongside traditional winemaking techniques to ferment the small parcels of fruit arriving at the winery

The term “hundred” originates from late Saxon and Norman England and refers to an administrative unit of government, meaning that 100+ households had to live in the area to qualify for its place on the map. Willunga 100 select their fruit from small parcels, or small lots, almost following the same approach.

After only its first vintage in 2005, wine journalist and judge James Halliday gave the winery a Five Star rating. He also described it as one of his ‘Top Ten newcomers’. This confirms the success of the original aim of Willunga 100. Indeed they aimed particularly to inject some quality and excitement into Australian wine scene.
