Willunga 100 2012 Shiraz, and 2013 Shiraz/Viognier and Cabernet Shiraz

27-Nov-2015
The Willunga 100 wines of the McLaren Vale are designed to be elegant, refined and modern. The label and company was established by David Gleave M.W. of Liberty Wines and John Ratcliff, the man behind Oddbins to create wines to fit in between the mainstream, inexpensive brands and the premium icons, delivering varietal quality from McLaren Vale fruit. Stephen Pannell made the wines from the inaugural 2005 vintage to 2009, with Tim James taking over from 2010. Mike Farmilo took over the reins from 2013, and all three winemakers have had the support of Kate Day. The name ‘Hundred’ refers to the Saxon and Norman unit of administration requiring 100+ people live in an area for a place on the map. The wine company selects small parcels from lots or ‘100s’ in the McLaren Vale, the best from the Hundred of Willunga. I had my first look at the wines in April 2013 (click here to see my tasting report), and found them impressive. Here, I review the 2012 Shiraz, and 2013 Shiraz/Grenache and Cabernet/Shiraz. www.willunga100.com The wines are distributed by Macvine International. www.macvine.co.nz
