A splendid, perfumed, spicy expression of Grenache. Fresh red fruit aromas and flavours and silky tannins combine on the palate that has great substance and structure. Well-balanced, with lingering hints of clove.

Sandy soils provide lifted aromatics while darker soils including 'Terra Rossa' types contribute to rich, bold tannins. All the vineyards are managed to produce the highest quality possible with only the best parcels selected for Willunga 100. McLaren Vale has a warm Mediterranean climate with a strong cooling influence from the Gulf of Saint Vincent.

Country Of Origin: Australia
Willunga 100 is in McLaren Vale, south of Adelaide. The grapes for the wines come from a range of selected vineyards in McLaren Vale, including some over 80 years old. 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.
