It has great depth and richness of plums and blackberries with supportive, balanced oak and a particularly lingering finish.
At Willunga 100, they especially take pride in making award-winning McLaren Vale wine with a focus on premium Grenache.
Willunga 100 is in McLaren Vale, south of Adelaide.
The grapes for the Willunga 100 Grenache mainly come from a range of selected vineyards in McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills. Including some over 50 years old.
Tim James and Kate Day take care of the winemaling. They use modern equipment alongside traditional winemaking techniques, including open-top fermenters, to ferment the small parcels of fruit arriving at the winery. Willunga 100 especially aims to produce unique and distinctive wines which capture the essence of the region.
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.
Finally, despite a few heat events and a lack of rain in January, McLaren Vale ended up having a gentle ripening period and near perfect conditions for flavour development. This especially happened thanks to to rain and cool temperatures in February, that freshened up the vines and allowed the grapes to ripen slowly.
