Willunga 100

Willunga 100 is one of the great producers in the McLaren Vale south of Adelaide (the name refers to the locality the Hundred of Willunga, "Hundred" being the old English word for "village"). They have access to some of the best vineyards in the country and are emerging as a world-class specialist in Grenache. The mediterranean climate of McLaren Vale has warm sunny days with sea breeze influences - perfect for ripening the grapes while maintaining a crisp, clean acid structure giving Willunga's grapes a beauteous quality that shines through in their wines.

Willunga 100 The Hundred Blewitt Springs Grenache 2015 (6x75cl)

James Halliday (93)

Despite the late ripening nature of grenache, this cuvee hails from 80yo vines, elevated across the sandy soils of a single plot within Blewitt Springs. The result is a deceivingly light to mid-weighted free-flow of pomegranate, rose water, orange rind and a litany of red fruits led by fresh strawberry, all given focus and punchy length by sandy tannins and bright, tangy acidity. There's initially a pinotesque ethereal nature to this, although the sweetness and impact grow in the glass. The wine is unoaked in order to accentuate the fruit's beam and effortless length of flavour.
