Guardians of a 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. Sourced from a single, old vineyard in Berri that is approximately 70 years old. Trained more like trees than bushes, these venerable old vines produce beautifully balanced fruit with subtle flavours. This beautifully pale rosé has lovely aromatic wild strawberry and cranberry notes on the nose. The palate is tangy, dry and textural with creamy berry fruit and adeliciously moreish finish. Food Matching: Ideal as an aperitif or with freshly grilled fish. Huon Hooke 95 Points - "Flamingo-pink hue. Intense bouquet, rosewater, Aperol, red berries, sweet vanilla and clove. Dry, savoury and spicy flavour profile, ripe apples, cranberry, red skins and toast. Medium-bodied, with a slippery texture that indicates extended time spent on lees. AY, 95/100, Sep 2020."
