It’s that time of year again, where Australia’s wineries stack up against one another in the annual release of Halliday scores - Australia’s superior authority in wine judging. Willunga 100 is proud to announce the below points for our Shiraz Viognier, and The Hundred Grenache range. While the 2018 Hundred wines haven’t yet been released, the 2018 Shiraz Viognier is available for purchase now.

Shiraz Viognier 2018 - 92 Points

“Fermented on skins in stainless steel for 7 days, in French and American hogsheads (20% new) for mlf and maturation for 18 months. Prior to bottling 5% viognier was blended into the shiraz. The role of viognier here is plain. It's the x-factor in the lifted, fragrant perfume - apple blossom, violet - and beyond that, shiraz sets the tidy pace with red fruits shining, spice and crunchy tannins. Pretty neat package.” SHOP NOW

The Hundred Blewitt Springs 2018 - 94 Points

“Hand-picked, whole berry, fermented on skins for 14 days, basket-pressed to stainless steel tanks, mlf, matured in stainless steel tanks. The Hundred range shows off the diversity in style of Vale grenache with Blewitt Springs bringing its sunniness and spice to the grape. A real crowd pleaser with exceptional fruit concentration, all the while remaining light on its toes. Black cherries, lifted florals, high spice, liquorice strap, pastille. That pastille jubeyness follows on the palate, adding a just a touch of sweetness. On song.”

The Hundred Clarendon 2018 - 91 Points

“Hand-picked, whole berry, fermented on skins for 14 days in stainless steel fermenter, basket-pressed to stainless steel tanks, mlf and maturation in seasoned French oak puncheons. Dry-grown, bush vine grenache from Clarendon with a bright, fresh outlook. Grenache sensibilities abound with stewed plums, violets, liquorice strap, wood smoke. Some confection moments, musk, raspberry bonbon join with fine tannins and warm mouthfeel to round out a smart and enticing wine.”
