Wine writer Des Houghton from The Courier Mail has reviewed two Willunga 100 wines in his column Quaff. He recently visited the Queensland College of Wine Tourism at Stanhope where he sampled a range of alternative reds. Mr Houghton encourages readers to broaden their wine horizons and try new grape varieties, one of his suggests is Grenache, and of course we couldn’t agree more. If you’re new to grenache, or if it’s an old favourite, here at Willunga 100 we specialise in this dynamic gem, and we have a range of award winning grenache wines for you try.
Mr Houghton wrote of our wines “There are red berry and rose perfumes springing from the glass in the Willunga 100 McLaren Vale Grenache. On the palate look for strawberry flavours and a hint of cinnamon. The Hundred Single Vineyard Blewitt Springs McLaren Vale 2015 Grenache displays red berry and floral aromatics of rose on the nose and cherry spice notes on the palate. Lees ageing has added to the richness.”
