Thistledown Gorgeous Grenache Rosé 12pk 2020
Thistledown is the vision of Master of Wine, Giles Cooke. Working with Grenache growers in unique sites across Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Riverland, Giles makes elegant, fine, aromatic reds. Choosing to focus on the Grenache grape shows the belief Giles has in this special variety. Thistledown Grenaches are made in small quantities in the Adelaide Hills.
Thistledown Gorgeous Grenache Rosé 2020
Glossy salmon pink, with all the nice things grenache does in rosé land. Lifted strawberry smells, promising a creaminess even early on. There's just enough tang of fresh red berries, just enough talc-like feel in the mouth, just enough light spice to spruik the lingering finish. All that's needed is a sunny afternoon and fun friends.
