Thistledown, Gorgeous Grenache Old Vine No. 1
South Australia, 2020 (750 ml)
100% Grenache. A bouquet of Violets greet your noes followed by a flurry of red fruits. On the palate, a mix of red and blue fruits; strawberry, red cherry, black plum, blackberry, white pepper. Mid palate, a soft note of vanilla, and cedar, with a touch of earth and spices. Tannins are coarse, and when coupled with big fruit, brings a medium plus body which is balanced with acidity. A pleasant finish.
Try it with Beef & Bean Chili!
