Willunga The One Hundred Grenache

Willunga The One Hundred Grenache

Willunga The One Hundred Grenache.

Halliday Wine Companion Magazine, April/May 2017 Issue

“Bright red in the glass, it has floral aromatics of a spring rose garden with spice and red fruit that jump out of the glass. The palate is luscious with a generosity of fruits, from strawberry to a hint of cinnamon, harnessed by fine, sandy tannins. It drinks perfectly with slow-roasted lamb shoulder. Enjoy from now until 2025.”

Tony Love, The Sun Herald, March 2018
4.5 Stars 

“There are two single-vineyard iterations in this: Blewitt Springs and Clarendon, the former a celebration of the Vale’s sub region where cooler nights temper the more robust tendencies of Grenache and a unique fragrance develops, here with rose petal above native bush florals. Medium bodied, fine sandy tannins in the mouth feel are also a signature. But that fragrance – beautiful.”

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 The One Hundred Grenache. – A great example of Aussie red wine from a winery which is passionate about Grenache.

Gundog Estate Hunter's Semillon

Gundog Estate Hunter's Semillon

Gundog Estate Hunter’s Semillon – The intention with this wine is to deliver a modern style of Hunter Semillon which offers outstanding early drinking appeal in combination with an ability to age if you can keep it that long. Relative to The Chase Semillon, we are sourcing fruit from blocks on heavier soils, offering bolder flavours and more structure. The principle sources being the dry-grown Vernon Vineyard in Mount View, and the 69’ and 89’ blocks of Semillon at the Somerset Vineyard. Ripeness levels from these vineyards / blocks are consistently higher (by around 0.5 Baume) than those servicing The Chase Semillon.e over the short to medium term. The frame is still fine, but the flavours are more generous.

Gundog Estate is a boutique producer of premium Semillon and Shiraz.
Sourcing fruit from some of the best vineyards in the Hunter, Hilltops and Canberra wine regions in New South Wales, they engage passionate growers that work tirelessly to deliver the best fruit possible. The growers also firmly believe in sustainable vineyard practices with a view to leaving the land in a better condition for the next generation.
In the winery, they employ a thoughtful combination of new and old world practices to deliver high quality, innovative wines. These wines represent some of the best examples of regional, modern Australian style, produced on a boutique scale. Fermentation with naturally occurring yeast, and partial fermentation of whites on skins, are two key practices we have implemented to great effect. With the reds, fermentation in open tanks, hand plunging, and shorter maturation periods in premium French oak puncheons illustrate a combined traditional / modern approach to winemaking that helps them to deliver wines that strike a fine balance between fruit flavour and complexity. Ultimately, they seek to produce quality wines that tell a story of the season and region. The wines should offer drinking appeal from day one, but also have the potential age gracefully.

Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz

Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz

Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz – This wine has been blended to compliment real food with wines of striking colour and elevated aromas, pristine fruit and a finish to persist with the wildest flavours. Winner in the “Judged with food” at the Sydney International Wine Competition and an “Outstanding” from James Halliday.

2017 experienced lower temperatures and higher than average rainfall. To keep the vines and yields in check, we had to thin the canopies much more than usual. The cool temperature meant that the harvest date was extended to late April; this is one of the latest on record for Shiraz.
The long hang time of the grapes and cold conditions have provided great expression of spicy cool climate shiraz, as pepper intensity is greatest in cooler years.
2017 was one of the most challenging vintages I have seen in 17 years, however I would rate this wine as one of best examples of Ladies Shiraz we have made.

This wine is deep crimson in colour with hints of purple at the rim. On the nose, intense lifted aromas of ripe red berries play with notes of violet, pepper and dark chocolate. The palate is full bodied with complex forest fruits, spice and velvety tannins leading to an elegant, long finish.

Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz pairs perfectly with roasted venison. It has been blended to complement real food with wines of striking colour, elevated aromas, pristine fruit and a finish to persist with the wildest flavours.

It can be kept cellared for the next ten years.

Mollydooker Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon

Mollydooker Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon

Mollydooker Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant & elegant wine, full of personality. Forthright flavours of raspberry, briar and dried herbs develop into soft layers of mocha and mint on the palate. The nose has cherry & rhubarb notes with a hint of vanilla, complimented by delicate oak elements of toasted coconut and spice. The balance and intensity of the 2016 Gigglepot allows the true personality of McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon to shine.

The Gigglepot is Sarah and Sparky’s daughter, Holly, who couldn’t stop giggling with these crazy black glasses on.

The grapes were grown on the Rivers Lane in McLaren Vale. Barrel fermented and matured in 84% American and 16% French oak using 50% new and 50% one year old barrels.

Alc: 15.5% Residual sugar: 2.2g/L pH: 3.70

The winery is in beautiful scenic McLaren Vale, 30 minutes easy drive from Adelaide. Bordered by the Adelaide Hills and five minutes away from glorious beaches, McLaren Vale is a great place to come visit. It is like a big village, we all know one another, and we all love having visitors. The food here is fabulous, fresh and local, and we have a thriving artistic community.

The vineyards are situated on the magical Seaview Ridge, which with its ancient soils and Mediterranean climate, is home to some of the most iconic Australian wines. We have three separate vineyards – Long Gully Road, Coppermine Road and the Home Blocks, giving us a total of 114 acres of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot. All of our grapes are grown sustainably.

The winemaker recommends that everybody should do the Mollydooker shake. You can watch this on YouTube. According to the winemaker  “Pre-shaken the wines are intense, concentrated and still magnificent. However, after the shake the wine becomes more approachable, the aromatics are lifted and the fruit is smoother on the palate. An overall more enjoyable and total Mollydooker experience!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCGFz3nnakE
