Thistledown “She’s Electric” Single Vineyard Grenache 2023

Grenache er en forunderlig drue, når den gror på gamle stokke. Æterisk, fin og let med den form for dybde og elegance, kendere kalder ’burgundisk’. En af de sjældne vine, man kan sidde og dufte til en hel aften. Tranebærsaft, vilde moreller og sandeltræ i duften. Ulfiltreret og håndholdt. Lagret på brugte fade.
 
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.

The 2023 She's Electric Old Vine Single Vineyard Grenache was handpicked, whole-bunch pressed and fermented wild with 50% whole bunches, then matured for 10 months in older French oak. The palate is complex and complete, with a ductile framework of tannin and lashings of exotic spice, raspberry compote, licorice and black tea. This is a superb wine; it's rich and big but so balanced. There is energy here, edgy, vibrant energy. 14% alcohol, sealed under screw cap.

This grenache shows glorious riffs on tangerines, mandarin peel, kirsch, cranberries, cloves and mace with a succulent mouth-feel. Full, but feels more medium-bodied. Scintillating length with a briary, chewy edge. Wonderful drinking.

Strawberry, raspberry, spice, thyme, mint, Earl Grey tea, a Campari-like top note. It’s medium-bodied, spicy with cherry and blood orange, fine white pepper dusted tannin, and some of that in the flavour department too, kind of bony, but juicy with strawberries too. Finish is powdery and long. Very good.
