Willunga 100 is in McLaren Vale, south of Adelaide.

 

The grapes for the wines come from a range of selected vineyards in McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills, including some over 80 years old.

 

Sandy soils provide lifted aromatics while darker soils including `Terra Rossa` types contribute rich, bold tannins.

 

The wine is matured in older French oak, to add complexity and mid palate richness, but not to dominate the varietal characters. The wine is bottled under screwcap to maintain freshness and ensure longevity.

 

This lively wine displays intense aromatics of cherry, raspberry, spice and hints of dried herbs. The palate demonstrates all the characters expected from a medium bodied Grenache: sandy, gritty tannin structure; lovely dryness on the finish; coupled with balanced sweet plum and strawberry fruit, a fantastic food wine!
