Thistledown, The Distant Light Grenache/Shiraz 2018

RRP £70.00

The winemaker, Englishman Giles Cooke MW, used Barossa Shiraz grapes sourced from Ebenezer and Mengler Hill, plus McLaren Vale Grenache from Blewitt Springs and Clarendon. This is powerful, concentrated and dark, a more structured wine than Thistledown’s usual style, with flavours ranging from smoked meats to dark chocolate, backed by firm, drying tannins. A solid, age-worthy red.
