Overview

The Cabernet for the 2014 vintage comes from the Azzolino vineyard which consists of 30 year old vines grown on heavier dark clay soils, and Cabernet from the San Remo vineyard in the Seaview Sub region of McLaren Vale with loam over limestone soils. A portion of the Shiraz also comes from the Azzolino vineyard as

well as the Hillside vineyard which is located in the Sellicks Hill sub region and is generally one of the first Shiraz vineyards to ripen in the district. The climate of McLaren Vale is often compared to that of the Mediterranean, warm sunny days, with sea breeze influences from the nearby Gulf of St Vincent. These warm days in union with the cooling maritime evening changes are perfect for ripening the grapes whilst maintaining a crisp, clean acid structure.

Winery Tasting Notes

Given the quality and intense varietal character of the Cabernet from this vintage we found that our final blend was more Cabernet dominate than past years. Intense mulberry, plum and a hint of eucalyptus are in balance with the rich Shiraz characters.

The palate is a smooth blend of the Cabernet tannins coupled with rich cherry and spice from the bolder Shiraz and a smooth lingering finish. French oak is in a supporting role to the tannins and fruit.

5 Star Winery - James Halliday's Wine Companion 2013

Willunga 100 is based in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia, about 40 minutes south of Adelaide. Founded in 2005, the company is a joint venture between quality UK based importer, Liberty Wines, owned and operated by David Gleave MW, and industry veteran John Ratcliffe. A 4.5 Star rated winery by James Halliday, he believes Willunga 100"has hit the scene running, with outstanding value for money."

The wines up until 2009 were made by one of Australia’s most dynamic and awarded winemakers Steve Pannell, assisted by Kate Day. Kate working previously at Mitchelton Wines, Mount Adam and Wellington Wines Tasmania. They are still made by Kate and we are lucky enough to have the experience and expertise of Tim James who has joined us. He is well known on the wine-judging circuit, and was the Managing Director of Wirra Wirra Wine Company for seven years until 2007, and before that was Production Director at Hardy's.

We source our fruit from an array of vineyards, some of which are up to 50 years old, reflecting the character of the area and the varieties from which they are made.

It has been a tradition to hang an Olive Branch above your door to announce the release of a great vintage wine. This blend is appropriately named after this great tradition.

A wonderful result for a wine we are very proud of.
