Willunga 100 Mclaren Vale Grenache 2011 Willunga 100 Mclaren Vale Grenache 2011

The Willunga 100 Grenache is made from a low yielding old vineyard in McLaren Vale. It has super colour intensity and an unparalelled aromatic lift combining both power and elegance. It was voted one of the 50 best value red wines in the February 2009 edition of Decanter.



ONLY AVAILABLE IN AN UNSLPLIT CASE OF SIX


VINEYARD
Willunga 100 is in the McLaren Vale region, south of Adelaide. The wines come from a range of vineyards, including some over 50 years old, which can produce a magnificent array of aromas and flavours.

Sandy soils provide lifted aromatics, and 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 St Vincent.

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Grenache

VINIFICATION
A combination of open fermenters and stainless steel pump-over tanks were used. Warm to hot fermentation temperatures, combined with regular pump-overs and plunging ensured optimum extraction, whilst maintaining the delicate aromatics of the Grenache grape. Timely pressing, only using the best press fractions ensured good quality of flavour and the favourable drying, sandy tannin structure. 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.

TASTING NOTE
The Willunga 100 Mclaren Vale Grenache 2011 is an elegant wine with aromas of dark cherry, white pepper and spice. Medium bodied with the usual sandy tannin structure combined with luscious red berry fruit of strawberries and raspberries. This is a fantastic food wine but also a gem when drunk on its own.
