Willunga 100 McLaren Vale Shiraz Viognier

Willunga 100 Shiraz Viognier

Willunga 100 McLaren Vale Shiraz Viognier – Deep purple red in colour, the wine is a heady mix of dark berry fruit, with earthy nuances and lifted florals from the addition of Viognier. Excellent structure, it has great depth and richness of plums and blackberries with supportive, balanced oak, bold tannins and a lingering finish.

The colour is bright Purple intensity, solid to the core. The nose is offering a tremendous lift of spice from the Viognier, dark black berries supported in the background by the careful use of oak. The palate is rich and luscious with the fruits dominating harnessed by flowing tannins that are long and lasting.

The soils in McLaren Vale are among the oldest in the world, estimated at over 500 million years. The resulting low vigour and old vines combine to produce low yields in the vineyard and stunning, concentrated fruit.
The name is taken from the historic ‘Hundred’ (administrative area of 100 square miles) of Willunga that was established in 1839 – only three years after the settlement of South Australia – and today marks the land from which much of our fruit is sourced. The tree featured on our bottle label is an old River Red Gum, which stands tall over the vineyards and was already over one hundred years of age when the first vines were planted in McLaren Vale in the 1840s.
Before the first vintage in 2005, the team explored the McLaren Vale vineyards and came across plots of 50-year-old Grenache vines. At this time, most of the wine produced from this fruit was destined for blending as there was little demand for top quality Grenache. We decided this had to change, so they made these vines their focus and gave them the attention they deserved. They haven’t looked back since.

Willunga 100 Shiraz Viognier – a great Aussie red blend.

Yalumba The Strapper Grenache Shiraz Mataro

Yalumba The Strapper Grenache Shiraz Mataro

Yalumba The Strapper Grenache Shiraz Mataro

A part of the Samuel’s Garden Collection from Yalumba – Yalumba’s Samuel’s Garden collection celebrates Yalumba’s direct lineage to Australia’s first vine plantings, some of which could be found in Samuel Smith’s garden 166 years ago. These wines demonstrate the diversity and quality of the Barossa region. The term Strapper is used to describe the solid dependable member of the team.

The GSM blend is a stalwart of the Barossa. The three red varieties have been planted in the region for nearly 170 years and in the past were commonly blended to make fortified “tawny port” style wines. After World War II the same blend started to become popular in table wines. ‘Grenache Shiraz Mataro’ is a bit of a mouthful – hence the birth of the colloquial ‘GSM’.

The 2012/13 growing season opened with a drier than average winter, followed by a much drier than average spring and summer. These conditions produced lighter weighted crops with much smaller bunches and berries that were full of flavour. Although the summer was warm, it was without extremes and the nights were relatively cool, helping to maintain the freshness, the aromatics and a pristine fruit profile

The three GSM varieties are picked separately for this wine and fermented in small batches – some in oak vats and some in stainless steel. The subsequent wine is aged in a mixture of large oak vats, small oak vats, puncheons and smaller oak barrels, to allow it to develop without the influence of a lot of oak flavour but to increase in textures and complexity.

Deep garnet in colour, this is a wine of many layers. It shows licorice, blackberry and plum, supported by notes of sandalwood and white pepper. A robust palate, full of chocolate and juicy Satsuma plum with a gravely tannin finish make it a great accompaniment to BBQ T-bone and seasoned wedges.

Yalumba The Strapper Grenache Shiraz Mataro – a great example of an Aussie blend. Vegan Friendly – see blog post http://www.auswinesonline.co.uk/category/wine-reviews/

 James Halliday Wine Companion 2019
5 RED STARs 6 straight years – Outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity.

Best with barbecued meats, spicy sausages, pasta with ragu sauce, Thai red curries, pumpkin and roasted vegetables.
Mount Hurtle Winery is an oasis among suburbia, nestled amid 4 acres of vineyards and landscaped gardens. With an almost Tuscan charm, the original winery and 1500m2 barrel maturation cellar (completed in 1998) is now perfectly equipped to cope with the rigors of modern winemaking. A large family of geese and ducks also inhabit the winery grounds, especially the dam near the front entrance of the estate.

The history of Mount Hurtle Winery stretches back more than 100 years to 1897 when a young Welshman, Mostyn Owen, bought 200 acres of prime Reynella hillside. Here he planted out 150 acres of vines and built a winery, where he ran the property and produced wine until he passed away in the 1940s.

The winery itself was considered very innovative for its time due to its use of gravity to feed wine throughout the cellars, and is Heritage listed because of this.

A cool climate region can be defined as an area with heat degree days of 1600 or less. Cool nights in the growing season, large diurnal variation, long cool autumns and distinct seasons are also key factors in defining a cool climate region. Orange is one of a handful of regions in Australia that fall into this category. Orange is unique among these regions due to the cool climate being the result
of continental conditions rather than latitude.

The vineyard at Koomooloo is volcanic in nature, something that the mountain continually reminds you of. There is a divide on the vineyard between younger and older basalt soils. The majority of the vineyard is 12 million year old olivine basalt, overlaying deep limestone. 400 million year old Fairbridge basalt border the property adding to the complex character of the vineyard.
