Thistledown “Thorny Devil” Old Vine Grenache 2023

Grenache fra gamle stokke dyrket i sand- og mineralholdig jord. Resultatet er en elegant og meget kompleks Grenache med ren frugt a la kirsebær og blåbær, samt en smule krydderier. Stilen er nærmere Bourgogne end den overmodne bulderbasse vin man stadig finder nogle steder i Australien, dog uden at give afkald på et tydeligt terroir der afslører at dette trods alt stadig er en vin fra Mclaren Vale i Australien. Sindssyg flot introduktion til Giles og Fergal Grenache verden og virkelig meget vin for pengene!

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.

I always enjoy this wine, the entry point to the glories of McLaren Vale grenache, among the world's finest expressions of this variety. Tamarind, red cherries, mint and sap verging on rhubarb. Almost like a Beaujolais, and yet there is plenty of tannic grit. Cranberry, white pepper, clove and dried thyme notes on a long, gentle finish. Delicious

From a selection of old bush vines across McLaren Vale. We don’t know from where, but we trust Giles Cooke MW, Grenache enthusiast, who’s probably over here right now, trailing about somewhere in SA. Cherry, mint, raspberry, something a little steely too, brown spicy and floral. It’s medium-bodied, sappy cherry and coal dust, something a little ozone-like about it (don’t mind me), with plump yet fine grained tannin grip, and a juicy finish of excellent length. Very nice. Fresh. Lively. Gustatory.

The 2023 Thorny Devil Grenache is routinely a rip-snorting little wine. Raspberry compote, orange peel, black tea, humbug candies and red licorice frame the bouquet, while on the palate, the wine is plush, luxurious and velvety. It's really good—again!
