    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.

Press Review

    Thistledown Sands of Time Grenache 2020
    Sourced from the old, sandy Blewitt Springs Home Block of Sue Trott. Fermented wild, with attenuated maceration in eggs and the inclusion of 30% whole bunches imparting turmeric, sandalwood, cardamon scents and finely wrought, granular tannins akin to nebbiolo. Real pinosity and sap to this. Succulent notes of kirsch, fecund strawberry and anise. A parry of tension and thrust of gentle sweetness. Remarkable freshness. A wine that places domestic grenache among the world's best.

    Very old vines in Blewitt Springs.
    Cherry, sage and dried roses, spicy biscuits, with a subtle earthy character. Ripe, intense red fruit and cherry flavour, sprinkled with dried herbs, almost gravelly tannin, fresh acidity, a fair amount of mouth-perfume, and a spicy poached strawberry finish of excellent length. Outstanding.
