Willunga 100 Grenache

2011 Willunga 100 Grenache rated 94 points – 2015 James Halliday Wine Companion

Bright, clear red; while little more than light-bodied, and not entirely typical of McLaren Vale grenache, has precision and focus to its red berry/raspberry fruit, backed by fine-grained tannins.

Andy Cronshaw recommends the 2011 Shiraz Viognier in the Manchester Evening News


Matches McLaren Vale’s blockbusting Shiraz with silky Viognier to make a wine in the style of Cote-Rotie, one of northern Rhone’s greatest. Savoury yet floral aromas abound and there’s great depth.

Willunga 100 ‘The Hundred’ Grenache 2013 rated 17.5 points in Decanter Magazine (Sept 2014 issue)

A project funded 10 years ago by three industry experts who found a dearth of good-value, quality Aussie wines. This is their flagship, showing lots of vibrant red fruit and floral characters. Power with elegance and freshness with fine tannins and cherry spice on finish.

Willunga 100 Cabernet Shiraz 2010

Best Value Wines

This is the classic Aussie blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, made in typically sweetly ripe and spicy blackcurrant mould, with tannins nicely rounded out by a touch of oak for a thoroughly pleasurable, full-flavoured and good value red.

Willunga 100 Shiraz Viognier 2011

An Aussie take on the Côte Rôtie blend of Shiraz with a touch of Viognier for aroma and softness, in this instance 5%, this is powerful in sweetly ripe, almost chocolatey, dark berry fruit with a suggestion of mint, and while it may not be especially complex, it is certainly rich and satisfying.
