Overview

This is a premium cool climate Pinot Gris with exotic aromatic qualities and lingering delicate flavours. It’s wonderful compliment to an outdoors summer lifestyle. Serve chilled and savour the luscious flavours with your favourite alfresco cuisine.

The Langgibby vineyard was planted in 1998 to the DIV and GN04 clones that lend themselves to the sandy loam soils, and produce riper pear characters. Charlie’s Patch vineyard is one of the highest in the Adelaide Hills at 460m, and is planted to the D1V7 clone, providing a long cool ripening period that lends its self to more minerally characters and a zesty acid structure. We hand pick the grapes to ensure they are delivered to the winery in the best possible condition with minimal juicing and shin contact prior to vinification to reduce colour and phenolic pick up

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The appearance is brilliant mid straw with a touch of yellow gold.

Aroma

The bouquet is fragrant and lifted by the intoxicating perfume of Jasmine and Primrose blossoms with Nashi pears, apples and ginger spice adding to the aromatic mix. The benefit of 3 years maturation adds to the complexity and depth of bouquet.

Palate

Fresh Nashi pears follow onto the palate with green apples and citrus zest giving a lively, refreshing palate weight with a mineral steeliness and long clean finish. The middle palate is round and full with sensuous tropical fruit, lychee and guava flavours adding character and complexity.

Food Matching

Pinot Gris on the patio works with everything you enjoy in the warmer months. Keep it on ice and serve with smoked salmon, frittata, summer salads, dips, crudités or any of your favourites. It’s natural acidity and crispness lifts the flavour of cold dishes and refreshes the palate with spicy or hot meals. It has enough depth of character to handle delicate oysters through to beer battered fish and chips.

Cellaring Potential

This Pinot Gris has an excellent pedigree and will be delicious drinking for another 18 – 24 months but it’s totally enjoyable right now!

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.

Awarded the Top Gold Medal at Royal Melbourne Wine Show 2011!

Willunga 100 is very proud to announce that the 2010 Willunga 100 McLaren Vale Grenache has been awarded a Top Gold medal at the 2011 Melbourne Wine Show in the Best Rhone Styles - Shiraz and/or Grenache Based Blends category.

There were 6 Top Gold recipients, the other 5 all being Shiraz, so we were judged to be the best Grenache in the Show!

The wine was also one of the 12 finalists to be tasted off for the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy.

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