Thistledown The Vagabond Grenache 2019
Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale, South Australia, Australia
Producer: Thistledown Wine Company
We're convinced that, of all of the regions of Australia, the greatest potential for greatness is in the McLaren Vale. We therefore set about finding unique plots throughout the region, looking for specific soil formations that would embue the Vagabond with finesse, varietal purity and texture.
Sourced from three remarkable sites in the famed Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale, this wine possesses a beautifully complex, aromatic nose of violets, wild cherry, rosemary and warming spice. The palate is energetic yet polished and smooth with vibrant cherry, spice, wild strawberry and liquorice on the palate. Medium bodied but multi-layered and textural with a very long, aromatic finish.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
