Press Review

    Thistledown She’s Electric Grenache 2023
    Founded by two Masters of Wine, one English, the other Irish, Giles Cooke and Fergal Tynan established Thistledown with the ambition to showcase the best vineyard sites around South Australia. In this gorgeously fragrant and dramatic grenache, they have absolutely captured the essence of old vine McLaren Vale grenache.

    Lovely vibrancy of colour in the glass. The aromas are alluring and complex. There’s plenty of dried flowers, herbs, red and blue fruits and a sarsaparilla lift. The flavours are vivid and multi-faceted: red fruits, spice and a creamy, textured mouth-feel. The tannins have a suppleness, yet real presence and the acidity delivers snap and crackle. Delicious gear. (Screwcap)

    Thistledown She’s Electric Grenache 2023
    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.

    Thistledown She’s Electric Grenache 2023
    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. Drink or hold.

    Thistledown She’s Electric Grenache 2023

    Seaview Grenache. 50% whole bunch. 2023 was a cool and late vintage.
    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.
