Gorgeous Grenache Red

Gorgeous Grenache Red

Gorgeous Grenache Red

Grenache is Australia’s signature grape variety and we’re slightly obsessed with it.
Utilising a range of premium vineyards across South Australia, we’ve crafted a wine that captures all that is good about Grenache. Aromatic, deceptively light but with beautiful wild fruit, and slurpy, supple tannins.
Vintage Conditions
2020 vintage conditions in were perfect in many ways. A warm , dry early season gave way to a mild, sometimes cool, February and March which allowed for ripening at a very relaxed pace. Small yields across all regions concentrated the fruit flavours while the dry conditions led to low disease pressures. Sadly, the season will also be remembered for the devastating bushfires that preceded it and the unprecedented global Covid pandemic that struck right in the middle of vintage. A remarkable season in many ways and one that we hope will be remembered for all the right reasons when you taste the wines.
Viticulture
Sourced from a number of old vineyards in the Riverland and McLaren Vale, some of which are dry grown bush vines.
Winemaking
All vineyards are vinified in small batches, separately. Wild ferments, whole bunch inclusion, larger oak and no filtration or fining help define the delicious, energetic
character of the wine.
Tasting
Aromatic and lifted on the nose with a beautifully layered, textural palate with wild strawberry and spice

Gorgeous Grenache Red – great wine from Australia made by a great vineyard.

Like the Thistle itself, our wines may appear robust on the surface but we seek deep flavours, a core of beautiful fruit and complexity that can be peeled back, layer by layer.

South Australia

South Australia is the largest wine producing state of Australia. It may be surprising to most that the Riverland region is the state’s largest grape producing area. The Barossa Valley is famed for its full-bodied, rich, ripe and generous reds. The Coonawarra is internationally renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon (and prized ‘terra rossa’ soils). Padthaway, McLaren Vale, and the Clare Valley all make major contributions, and the importance of the Adelaide Hills is rapidly increasing.
