Thistledown from Australia

We are excited to introduce Thistledown to Missouri!

We took everything they would let us buy!

Consistent 90+point scoring Grenache! 
The best value in Grenache!
2020 Thistledown Gorgeous Old Vine Grenache...$16.99

Tasting Notes: Gorgeous deep garnet color. Bright aromatics and quite lifted on the nose with a beautifully layered, textural palate with notes of wild strawberry and spice.
Thistledown is not alone in their endeavors to make great Grenache, they are unique in their methods and it is for this reason that they are now unanimously considered to be Australia’s top Grenache specialist.
Rated 92/100 Ray Jordan, Australian Wine Writer

2019 Thistledown Vagabond Grenache Blewitt Springs...$44.99
Old Vine Blewitt Springs, Mclaren Vale
This showcases the power of Blewitt Springs in a very boldly stated, fruit-driven expression of grenache with real purpose. The aromas are of redcurrants, raspberries, pomegranate and blood oranges and lead to a palate with a phenomenal drive of acidity and tannin. Such intense and defined style here. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

2019 Thistledown Quickening Barossa Shiraz...$44.99
As life-forces stir, a connection is born and a personality created. The Quickening celebrates the vivifying power of nature. This is the Barossa reimagined. An exuberant outpouring of energy, captured within a sculptured framework that reflects the rugged yet beautiful landscape of its conception. A deliciously vibrant style of Barossa Shiraz with succulent raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, hints of spice and elegant, glossy texture.
