    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 The Vagabond Grenache 2021
    From four old vine vineyards, all in Blewitt Springs. 35% whole bunch. Some concrete egg, some puncheon. Nice.
    So much perfume here. Dried flowers, thyme, spice, orange peel, raspberry and strawberries. It’s medium-bodied, quite tense and firm, fine sandy grip to tannin, brightness and so much energy, a subtle meaty edge, dry with plenty of grip and superb shape to the long finish, and fresh red fruits and fragrance to close. An outstanding expression of Grenache.

    Thistledown The Vagabond Grenache 2021
    Deep, bright red/purple colour, with a fragrant bouquet of black fruits and fresh herbs, aromatic and bold, a hint of co­conut, the palate lusciously fruit-sweet at its heart and backed by fi1m but gentle tannins that are in good balance while supplying appropriate structure. Extra length. I'd give it a year more, but it's a good drink now. I especially enjoy its freshness and vitality. (Blewitt Springs district)
