Thistledown “She’s Electric” Single Vineyard Grenache 2021

Grenache er en forunderlig drue, når den gror på gamle stokke. Æterisk, fin og let med den form for dybde og elegance, kendere kalder ’burgundisk’. En af de sjældne vine, man kan sidde og dufte til en hel aften. Tranebærsaft, vilde moreller og sandeltræ i duften. Ulfiltreret og håndholdt. Lagret på brugte fade.
 
Thistledown er ikke bare endnu et vinhus. Vinene er håndplukket og håndlavet af de allerbedste druer, vildgæret i hele klaser og uden industrielle tilsætninger. To Masters of Wine, Giles og Fergal, står for driften og de styrer benhårdt efter friskhed, terroir og good old Aussie juiciness. Vinene er ikke i hverdagsprislejet, men stadig regulære kup i deres liga.

The Vagabond is superlative, but this is extraordinary! The tannins, taut, febrile and wound across a spool of sage, thyme and blood orange zest. The drive of red cherry, rhubarb and Mediterranean herb is palate staining, without ever reneging on its sandy, vibrant and effortless hand. Incredibly complex. Scintillating length. Kerpow

A complex nose of blueberry, raspberry, red cherry, violet, bark, moss and grated nutmeg. Medium- to full-bodied with silky, fruit-soaked tannins. Generous, but not overdone. Rather, it is fresh, bright and vibrant, with a bevy of succulent fruit and ground spice. Layered, with great balance.

95 points The Wine Front
Dark raspberry, sage and thyme, spice and dried roses. Medium-bodied, ripe raspberry, silky and sooty tannin, perfume of bergamot and gentle twist of amaro, a sort of stony/earthy character, almond and fine grip on a long and fragrant red berry finish. Beautiful wine. And it needs more time.

95 points The Real Review
Medium to deep red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet shows iodine, balsamic herbs possibly signalling some whole-bunch activity. It's full-bodied and rich in the mouth, the generous flavour backed judiciously by abundant tannins, nice and ripe. Luscious stuff-but also has a little more structure than The Vagabond. (50% whole bunches)

The 2021 She's Electric Old Vine Single Vineyard Grenache is like silken tofu in the mouth: it's is all about velvety texture, except here, the fruit is punctuated and supported by both very fine tannins and tense acid. This is a very smart wine, exciting, with notes of blood, raspberry pip, pink peppercorn and red licorice. It has a texturally creamy undertow, and the tannins are powdery and smashed into the fruit. Awesome.
