Thistledown Distant Light Barossa Shiraz Grenache 2020

97 POINTS & TOP WINES OF THE YEAR: Vinous/ Wine Pilot (Angus Hughson)
96 POINTS: The Real Review
94 POINTS: Robert Parker Wine Advocate

An intoxicating, ethereal nose of sweet, spicy black cherry, cassis and balsam. The palate unravels its silky, textural beauty over the palate. Draped with wild strawberry, north African spice, autumnal wood smoke and hints of smoky, grilled meats, it displays an elegant persistence.

"This immediately enticing and complete wine draws you in with its intriguing blend of ethereal aromas with more than a passing resemblance to fine Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Suave dark cherry, charcuterie, peppery spice, raspberry and roasted meat aromas deliver power and subtlety, beautifully matched to sweet oak. The Shiraz and Grenache then come together superbly to deliver a mouth filling palate with fantastic fruit density plus a rich velvety texture underlined by firm tannins that builds to peacock’s tail finish. Seriously impressive."
 - Vinous

"Good depth of colour and hue, there are some char-oak aromas but the bouquet while clean and fresh is a bit shy. The palate has ironstone and graphite as well as char-oak over rich plummy fruit and pleasingly supple tannins giving it an agreeably soft texture. It's young and straightforward now and would reward cellaring. Concentrated and velvet-smooth, with a tremendously long aftertaste. Great potential."
