Our Fathers Just Like Heaven Roussane Grenache Blanc

Our Fathers 'Just Like Heaven' Roussanne Grenache Blanc 2021

McLaren Vale, South Australia, Australia

Producer: Our Fathers

Though not strictly a Thistledown wine, it is made by Giles Cooke MW and all of the profits go to charity so we just had to include it. That it's amazing wine also helps.

Hand-picked Roussanne and organically farmed Grenache Blanc are wild fermented in barrels and a concrete egg to produce a textural, pithy white wine with lovely honeysuckle laced fruit.

In Australia, proceeds go to Roses in the Ocean - a leading lived experience of suicide organisation - close to Giles' heart and making a difference to many lives.

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans 

Press & Reviews:

  • 97 POINTS - Halliday Wine Companion (Ned Goodwin MW)
    'A not-for-profit label by Giles Cooke MW of Thistledown, with all proceeds going toward mental-health charities. Roussanne, from Sellicks Hill. Grenache, sourced from Yangarra. Fermented wild in old French wood and ceramic eggs. Exceptional wine, here! Riffs on Asian pear, rooibos, quince, preserved lemon, hazelnut and dried herb, whisk me to Avignon and environs. Like an unctuous Meursault, with a Mediterranean sheen. Viscous and detailed of phenolics, yet paradoxically taut, with a slippery mineral underbelly propelling it to scintillating length. We should be proud of wines like this coming from these shores.'
