Press Review

    Thistledown Thorny Devil Old Vine Grenache 2021
    From a variety of sites across McLaren Vale, hand-picked, 30% whole bunch, raised in old oak. Perfumed, spicy, cherry and raspberry, almond and Earl Grey tea. It’s medium-bodied, firm but ripe tannin with a graphite feel, kind of dry but succulent, raspberry and roses, with a pleasing tannic crunch and freshness to the long finish. Excellent Grenache. Invigorating.

    Thistledown Thorny Devil Old Vine Grenache 2021
    Deepish red/purple colour. Dried and fresh herbs to sniff, background jammy raspberries, the palate continuing the al­most lush mouth-feel and fruit depth. It's quite intense and also fairly firm in the tannin department. Very good and has potential.
