Willunga 100 McLaren Vale Tempranillo 2017
Tantalising old vine Tempranillo ... 95pts!
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). “Excellent colour; very precise black cherries, spices and darker berries on the back-palate, fine but firm tannins. Will relish time in bottle, and its great balance will stand it in good stead. Quality oak, too ... 95pts” (Halliday).
