Thistledown Advance Release Rousanne
Thistledown Advance Release Rousanne wines offer a portal into the future of Thistledown. Though their focus is very much on Grenache, Shiraz and Chardonnay, it is not an unnatural progression to dabble in some Rhône influenced whites. Relatively rare in South Australia, this example from the southerly reaches of the region benefits from being grown on kurrajong formation soils, famed for the quality of the fruit they provide.
Thistledown Advance Release Rousanne has aromatic honeysuckle and toasted almond lead through to a beautifully waxy, lemon laden palate with hints of ripe pear, honey and ginger.
From a vineyard situated at 100m on Kurrajong formation red brown earth with alluvial shale. Single wire trellis, permanent cordon, spur pruned.
Hand-picked then whole bunch pressed, settled in tank, racked and wild fermented in barrel. Aged in the same barrique for 8 months.
Ever since historic Scots, James Busby and John MacArthur founded the Australian wine industry in the early 19th century, the relationship between Scotland and Australia has been an enduring one. Guardians of this long history, Thistledown Wine Co. continues the tradition of Scottish ingenuity and great Australian wine.
From their small-batch winery in the idyllic Adelaide Hills, they work with pristine fruit sourced from iconic vineyard sites. Giles Cooke MW and Fergal Tynan MW, with the helping hand of Peter Leske, craft lithe, energetic wines that illustrate the benefits of great sites and intelligent, low-intervention winemaking. Giles and Fergal share a particular passion for Grenache and, in ever more detail, Thistledown continue to unpick the rich patchwork of South Australian Grenache – reassembling it in their own inimitable style. This unique blend of superb fruit sources and experience in both the New and the Old Worlds helps craft wine of subtlety, texture and detail – wines perfectly suited to complement rather than overwhelm fine food.
