Press Review

    Thistledown Thorny Devil Grenache 2019

    One of the country's finest grenache producers, and on the back of a stellar suite of '18's, Thistledown can do little wrong. An impeccably poised expression of optimal ripeness, a gentle rasp of whole bunch (30%) and flavours of kirsch, poached strawberry, orange peel and cranberry. The lattice of tannins - chiffon-like, granular and deftly extracted - sets this maker apart. A plume of gentle acidity tows it long. Fine gear. Hard to spit! 14.5% alc.

    Thistledown Thorny Devil Grenache 2019

    A very fragrant, aromatic style with attractive, fresh red flowers and sappy, bunchy raspberries and boysenberries. The palate has a very complete, supple and smooth-honed feel with a seamless build of finely layered tannins. Drink now. Screw cap.
