Willunga 100 The Tithing

The Tithing Grenache forms part of the limited release range. Only made in the best vintages from small parcels of premium old dry grown bush vine grapes from iconic vineyards within the region.

The Tithing showcases the influence of oak and barrel maturation to mirror the old-world style of Grenache that can be achieved with McLaren Vale fruit. The handpicked fruit is open fermented at high temperatures with regular pump overs and plunging down to ensure optimum early extraction. This regime lessens towards the end of ferment ensuring the delicate aromatics of Grenache are retained. The wine is matured using a mixture of new and seasoned French oak puncheons which add complexity and mid-palate richness. The power and concentration of this wine sees it hold its own against its old-world peers such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Priorat and Roussilon.

Bottled under screwcap to ensure freshness and longevity, this wine will delight for years to come.

Willunga 100

Willunga 100 aims to produce unique and distinctive wines which capture the essence of the region. The grapes come from a range of selected vineyards in McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills (for the whites), including some over 50 years old. After only its first vintage in 2005, wine journalist and judge James Halliday gave the winery a Five Star rating in the 2008 Guide, and named it as one of his ‘Top Ten newcomers’. This vindicated the original aim of Willunga 100, which was to inject some quality and excitement back into Australian wine at this price. New vintages will be made by winemaker Tim James (ex Hardy’s and Wirra Wirra and a regular on the wine judging circuit) and continue to build on the quality of the range.

McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale is predominately a red wine region, producing some of the best red wines in South Australia. Vineyards were first planted in the mid 1800s. One of the early pioneers Thomas Hardy established a business that evolved to BRL Hardy, one of the largest wine companies in the country. The region also has a healthy number of boutique wineries that consistently make fine wines and experiment with different wine styles. The climate is warm to hot with dry summers, and benefits from cooling breezes from the St Vincent Gulf. The main wine styles: Red – Shiraz (rich, ripe & generous), Cabernet Sauvignon; White – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc.

Chardonnay

Australia’s most widely planted white grape variety. The heavily oaked styles of the earlier nineties are now being replaced with styles emphasising the regional fruit and greater complexity. The cooler climate regions producing styles of great elegance and finesse.
