Thistledown Gorgeous Grenache Rose

Ever since historic Scots, James Busby and John MacArthur founded the Australian wine industry in the early 19th century, the relationship between Scotland and Australia has been an enduring one.

Guardians of a long history, Thistledown Wine Co. continues the tradition of Scottish ingenuity and great Australian wine. From their small-batch winery in the idyllic Adelaide Hills, they work with pristine fruit sourced from iconic vineyard sites.

Vineyards

Sourced from a single, old vineyard in Berri that is approximately 70 years old. Trained more like trees than bushes, these venerable old vines produce beautifully balanced fruit with subtle flavours.

Vinification

Fruit was hand-picked before gentle de-stemming and crushing followed by 3.5 hours on skins to extract minimal colour. A cool fermentation followed which retained the aromatic, herbal notes and focussed the crisp, textural palate. Maturation on lees for 2 months helped increased texture prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

This beautifully pale rosé has lovely aromatic wild strawberry and cranberry notes on the nose. The palate is tangy, dry and textural with creamy berry fruit and a deliciously moreish finish.

Ideal as an aperitif or with freshly grilled fish.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
