Thistledown

About Thistledown

Founded as recently as 2010, Thistledown is one of the most exciting, young fine wine projects in Australia at this moment in time. In essence, a super négociant sourcing fruit from parcels tended by enormously skilful and dedicated growers, Thistledown’s wines are amongst the greatest “new wave” expressions of Syrah, Chardonnay and in particular Grenache available.

 

Having met in a bar the night before their studies towards the prestigious Master of Wine exam began in earnest, Giles Cooke and Fergal Tynan unwittingly struck up a friendship that would culminate in one of Australia’s most exhilarating wineries.

 

Both vignerons eventually earned their MW status and founded Thistledown alongside Peter Leske 12 years later. United in their hatred for the lazy stereotype that Australian wines were beholden to the elevated temperatures of their climate and destined to be hugely jammy and alcoholic, it will come as no surprise to learn that the trio craft beautifully elegant and perfumed wines. The sensational range offered below will make even the most sceptical oenophile rethink any preconceived notions they have regarding Aussie offerings.

Thistledown Cunning Plan Shiraz 2019 (6x75cl)

Halliday Wine Companion (96)

A full-bodied shiraz that reflects cunning winemaking. Whole-berry fermentation has put a rich gloss on the palate without overloading the tannin structure. The predominantly black berry fruit is shot through with licorice, spice and an airbrush of dark chocolate.
