Willunga 100 McLaren Vale Grenache 2016
Luscious McLaren Vale Grenache from the "decidedly high-powered" Willunga 100
Willunga 100 takes its name from the historic Willunga ‘Hundred’ (an administrative area of South Australia) that was established in 1839. The tree
on the label is an old River Red Gum, already over 100 years of age when the first vines were planted in the 1840s. The winemaking team is “decidedly high-powered ... the hugely experienced Tim James and Mike Farmilo the conductors of the band” (Halliday). He gives this rich and powerful Grenache 91pts: "Right in the mainstream of the resurrection of grenache from its days as purveyor of large amounts of fodder for fortified winemaking. It was a ripe year, but the wine hasn't lost its shape. ... 91pts” (Halliday).
