Willunga 100 Tempranillo
In Willunga 100 Tempranillo aromatics of black cherry, sweet plum and hints of all spice are evident, whilst the palate is a little more serious with blackberries, spice and an earthiness that gives the wine a savoury note. The tannins are persistent and promote great length, backed up by a balanced acid structure.
Willunga 100 is in McLaren Vale, south of Adelaide.
The grapes for the Willunga wines come from a range of selected vineyards in McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills, including some over 50 years old.
The Wines are made by Tim James and Kate Day. 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 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 just as the district was divided up into ‘100s’, or small lots.
After only its first vintage in 2005, wine journalist and judge James Halliday gave the winery a Five Star rating in the 2008 Guide, and named it as one of his ‘Top Ten newcomers’. http://willunga100.com/
This vindicated the original aim of Willunga 100, which was to inject some quality and excitement back into Australian wine
