Thistledown Thorny Devil Grenache

REGION: McLaren Vale, Australia


VITICULTURE: Conventional

YEAR: 2021


INFO: With Grenache, Thistledown are always looking to maximise fruit purity, texture and finesse rather than making just another rich red wine. The fruit was hand picked from a variety of sites, all of which were vinified separately with up to 30% whole bunches retained in the ferment. Fermentation began naturally and hand plunging twice a day was carried out through to dryness. Gently pressed off skins before 10 months in old oak hogsheads.

The wine has the characteristic McLaren Vale perfume and spice with a beguiling texture and perfume that unfolds, layer by layer. This delicately hued red is otherwise very elegant with vibrant wild strawberry, spice and silky texture
