Willunga 100 Mclaren Vale Cabernet/ Shiraz 2010 Willunga 100 Mclaren Vale Cabernet/ Shiraz 2010

The Willunga 100 Cabernet/ Shiraz tries to aim back to the days when Aussie Cab/ Shiraz offered some of the best value and quality in the wine world. The blend is a true Australian classic, mixing the berry fruit of the Cabernet with the bramble of the Shiraz. This wine won a silver medal in the Decanter World Wine Awards.

ONLY AVAILABLE IN AN UNSLPLIT CASE OF SIX

VINEYARD
Willunga 100 is in the McLaren Vale region, south of Adelaide. The wines come from a range of vineyards, including some over 50 years old, which can produce a magnificent array of aromas and flavours.

Sandy soils provide lifted aromatics, and darker soils including 'Terra Rossa' types contribute to rich, bold tannins. All the vineyards are managed to produce the highest quality possible with only the best parcels selected for Willunga 100.

McLaren Vale has a warm Mediterranean climate with a strong cooling influence from the Gulf of St Vincent.

GRAPE VARIETIES
70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Shiraz

VINIFICATION
Parcels of both Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz were harvested from a range of suitable blocks during March and April. Some cooler sites were used for Cabernet Sauvignon to enhance this part of the blend profile, while the ripe, juicy Shiraz adds tannin and spice.

Individual vineyard blocks were fermented separately, using a range of different techniques for complexity. Only the best press fractions are used to ensure good quality of flavour.

The wine was matured in French and American oak barrels for about 11-14 months.

TASTING NOTE
This is a serious wine with aromatics of dark plum, cherry, spice and earthy undertones. The palate is generous and rich and does not disappoint with these characters shining through, coupled with dark berries. A long tannin structure integrated with new and older French oak make this wine one that will age very well.
