In 2005 when they founded Willunga 100, Grenache in McLaren Vale was mostly used for blending. But the people behind this label had a crystalline vision to showcase the variety, and how well suited it was in the region.
To that end, they found some 50 y/o dry grown bush-vines, and began the journey. These days, it’s clear how special McLaren Vale Grenache is, and head winemaker Skye Salter is certainly working her magic with it.
And the name Willunga 100? It seems that during the settlement of SA, you needed 100 households to get a place on the map, hence Willunga 100.
