Thistledown Wine Company Gorgeous Grenache 2020

AustraliaThis grenache is sourced from various older vineyards across Riverland and McLaren Vale, some of which are gnarly old bush vine. Each vineyard was native vinified separately, with partial whole bunch. The blend was rested in larger oak and bottled without filtration or fining. Ripe and juicy on the fuller palate, with bright plum, downy blackberry, perfumed strawberry, red and black liquorice, and heaps of fine peppery spice. Tannins are supple and smoothed, guiding this to a gripped finish. Ready to crack and drink now, with roasted beets and/or sweet shellacked ribs.Tasted: 07 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 36.00 private wine shops Producer: Thistledown Wine CompanyDistributors: Sur Lie
