Bright aromatics of cherry and red berries with hints of spice. The palate is a little more generous and leans towards blue fruits with blackberries, warm spice and an earthiness that gives the wine a savoury profile. The tannins are fine grained and persistent, supported by a juicy acidity.
At Willunga 100, they take great pride in their award-winning McLaren Vale wines. The small and passionate team have created an exciting and vibrant range that truly showcases the magic of the McLaren Vale region.
Before Willunga 100’s first vintage in 2005, they explored the region and came across plots of 50-year-old Grenache vines. At the time, most Grenache was destined for blending. They decided this had to change, so made these vines their focus and gave them the attention they deserved.
Today, led by talented young winemaker Skye Salter, Willunga 100 continues to be specialist and award winning winery in McLaren Vale Grenache. McLaren Vale has great geological diversity from sub-region to sub-region, and the soils are among the oldest in the world estimated at over 500 million years. This, along with the Mediterranean climate and old vines, combine to produce low yields and stunning, concentrated fruit. Skye works with Willunga 100’s own Blindspot Vineyard in Blewitt Springs, as well as other coveted vineyards in the region to craft some truly magnificent wines.
