Grenache * 75cl * Vegan * 14.5% ABV * McLaren Vale, Australia
Willunga 100 is a trailblazing producer located in the McLaren Vale, south Australia, just south of Adelaide. In its first vintage in 2005, James Halliday gave the winery a five-star rating and heralded it among his 'Top Ten Newcomers'. The Grenache here is sourced from an 80-year-old single vineyard with ancient sandy soils unique to the region - the Mediterranean climate has warm sunny days with sea breeze influences that encourages excellent ripening. Unoaked, juicy Grenache full of pretty, lifted floral aromatics and crunchy red berry fruit. Round and rich with fine, raspy tannins and a long, grippy finish. A somewhat unusual style of Grenache that would appeal to fans of lighter red wines. Excellent with smoked or slow-braised meats. Enjoy over the next 5 years.
