Thistledown She's Electric Grenache 2021
McLaren Vale, South Australia, Australia
Producer: Thistledown Wine Company
Some vineyards have a remarkable story to tell and we came upon such a vineyard in late 2016. At the Seaview end of Chapel Hill Rd, it’s old bush vines contrasted by a planting of much younger Grenache. Apparently, half of the vineyard was burned when a bird caught light on a power line, fell to the ground and set light to the vineyard! We were so glad that some of the amazing old vines are still there for us to use.
Aromatic and lifted on the nose with a beautifully layered, textural palate with wild strawberry and spice.
