Press Review

    Thistledown The Vagabond Grenache 2019

    This showcases the power of Blewitt Springs in a very boldly stated, fruit-driven expression of grenache with real purpose. The aromas are of redcurrants, raspberries, pomegranate and blood oranges and lead to a palate with a phenomenal drive of acidity and tannin. Such intense and defined style here.

    Hand-picked, wild-fermented, 33% layered passive whole bunch, half in a concrete pyramid egg, the remainder with 20% whole bunches, then a barrel selection. Delicious grenache, fresh and juicy, with a skein of fruit and oak tannins.

    Vibrant crimson-purple colour centre to rim. A very euro bouquet of cured meats, red licorice and stewed plums. Acidity speaks more of cooler climes - red cherries and raspberries. Oak and tannin are measured. Blue and red fruits carry the palate. Classy.

    Blewitt Springs.

    Creamy raspberry, rosy perfume and spice, maybe a bit of shoe leather and dried herb. It’s silky, fresh, fine grip of tannin, mint and red fruits, but savoury in the background, with a coolness and vitality that makes it so charming, and good to drink. Some red fruit and sap to close. Yes.
