Thistledown “Charming Man” Old Vine Grenache 2021

Bernard Smart og hans familie har passet en vinmark i 100 år. Grenache plantet lige efter første verdenskrig gror som små buske med bittesmå druer pakket med vanvittig smag. Dybmørk silkefrugt møder skønne aromaer af brombær, kirsebær, stjerneanis og udpræget mineralitet.
 
Thistledown er ikke bare endnu et vinhus. Vinene er håndplukket og håndlavet af de allerbedste druer, vildgæret i hele klaser og uden industrielle tilsætninger. To Masters of Wine, Giles og Fergal, står for driften og de styrer benhårdt efter friskhed, terroir og good old Aussie juiciness. Vinene er ikke i hverdagsprislejet, men stadig regulære kup i deres liga.

96+ This wine is named after Bernard Smart, who owns the Smart vineyard in Clarendon. This 2021 The Charming Man Single Vineyard Grenache is more savory and fine-boned than the Sands of Time; there’s rose petal fruit and raspberry pip and iodine, kelp and graphite. There’s a bloody character here. I love it. It's savory, supple, whippy, pliable, mouth perfume.

Pickled cherry, ume, lavender, rhubarb and poached plum. A waft of menthol, too, but nothing intrusive. The Smart vineyard is high and cool. Characterful, while pushing the svelte tannic line of grit and paradoxical elegance that mark the region's finest wines. All, let's face it, grenache. This is stellar. It grows in stature as it unravels and beams clove, white pepper and violet across a brilliant finish of real pizazz.

Aromas of crushed red and black cherries, baked strawberries, rosemary stems and violets. Full-bodied with silky tannins. Perfumed and vibrant on the palate, with a solid core of red fruit. Pretty, but sturdy, with very nice depth and length.
