Thistledown Gorgeous Grenache 2019
We believe that 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 contemporary Australian old vine Grenache.
Aromatic and lifted on the nose with a beautifully layered, textural palate with wild strawberry and spice.

Sourced from a number of vineyards in prime regions of South Australia.
All vineyards are vinified in small batches, separately. Wild ferments, whole bunch inclusion, larger oak and no filtration or fining define the natural character of the wine.
Right across South Australia, the 2019 vintage will be remembered as a very challenging one. Very dry conditions persisted throughout the growing season while some areas also had to contend with frost, hail and wind – all of which reduced the crop but helped increase concentration and quality.
