Willunga 100 The Hundred Old Vine Grenache 2017
The dry grown bush vines for this single vineyard grenache were planted in 1923 on ancient loam soil over red-brown clay and bedrock. The vineyard is situated 220m above sea-level. On moderate to steep hills, of the Clarendon Onkaparinga Gorge. Fruit is hand harvest and whole berry sorted, then vinified in open fermenters and gently basket pressed. The result is an elegant and fragrant wine that is a pure expression of both site and variety.
The bouquet is pure and correct, with red cherry/raspberry aromas leading the way with a stream of focused fruit, oak and tannins standing by watching proceedings.
