Thistledown The Vagabond Grenache 2018

The Blewitt Springs fruit was hand picked, gently crushed to retain whole berries and then cold soaked for 5 days prior to fermentation. Twice daily hand plunging during fermentation was followed by gentle pressing before running to 500 litre puncheons.

20% new French oak was used, with the balance being made up of used French. A savage selection was made after 6 months ageing with the selection exhibiting pure, lifted raspberry and savoury strawberry fruit couped with subtle spices and a creamy texture. The overwhelming impression is of lightness, lift and purity with hints of dried citrus, spice and cherry. Not for nothing is Grenache known as the Pinot of the South!

"From a vineyard in Blewitt Springs, with a vine age of something like 70 years. Realised I should have reviewed these some time ago (promises, promises) and went on a mad hunt under the house for it. Some spiders (one dead, one alive), a few mozzies, and a bumped head later…triumph!!

"It’s fair to say the boys at Thistledown surely do love their Grenache. This one also Blewitt Springs.
Sage and herb perfume, red frogs and raspberry, cinnamon spice. It’s juicy and lively, light herbal flavour, gentle rasp of tannin, delicious flavour, slightly warm, but long on the finish, a bit of gravel and dried herb kicked up in its wake."
