Willunga 100 The Hundred Blewitt Springs Grenache
Willunga 100 The Hundred Blewitt Springs Grenache has red berry and floral aromatics of rose on the nose, with a roundness and richness from the lees ageing that works in harmony with the finer tannins and cherry spice notes on the palate.
Willunga 100 is in McLaren Vale, south of Adelaide.
The Grenache for The Hundred comes from Sue Trott’s vineyard located at an altitude of 180 metres in the Blewitt Springs sub-region. These vines are dry grown and some of the oldest in the district, planted some 80 years ago. Soils here are the distinctive ancient sandy soils only found in Blewitt Springs with an underlying clay and ironstone base. The vines are planted on an easterly facing slope with magnificent views over McLaren Vale and out to sea. The mediterranean climate of the McLaren Vale has warm sunny days with sea breeze influences from the nearby Gulf of St Vincent – perfect for ripening the grapes whilst maintaining a crisp, clean acid structure.
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 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. He also named it as one of his ‘Top Ten newcomers’. This vindicated the original aim of Willunga 100, which was particularly to inject some quality and excitement into Australian wine.
