Press Review

    Thistledown Thorny Devil Grenache 2016

    Light, bright crimson; the inclusion of 9% grenache from McLaren Vale has worked very well, for there's a touch more structure and spine than many Barossa Valley grenaches at this price. The red fruits that are the heart and soul of this wine are delicious.

    Old vine Barossa grenache. Bit of word-play in the wine’s title for good measure.
    Maybe the fruit flavour is a little sweet – we’re into black jellybean and raspberry territory here – but the inlay of spice and gentle infusion of clovey oak is really quite beguiling. Add a general earthiness, excellent flow, and a convincing finish and you have yourself a most attractive wine.

    Deep red/purple colour. The aromas are of dark fruits, plums, minty blackberries and a lick of spice. It's bright, bold and simple, the palate lean and sinewy, with lots of fine powdery tannins and good fruit concentration. Very nice grenache.
