Dalwhinnie, Moonambel Shiraz, 2013
Dalwhinnie, Moonambel Shiraz, 2013Dark purple-black. There is a wonderful lift to this wine; dark ripe rich and sweetly spiced, intense black cherries, and lifted rose petals; this wine has density and freshness with serious concentration. Spice notes are there in abundance displaying both white and black pepper, fresh coffee notes and dark chocolate.
This is a rich wine which has a wonderful elegance. There is a big explosion of concentrated dark bramble patch fruits, displaying density, freshness and incredibly fine skin tannins. The mid palate is full and long, the after palate tightens up displaying chocolate savoury tannins. This wine needs some time, 3 years maybe but in my opinion it is up there with the best Dalwhinnie Moonambel Shiraz we have made.

"A very vibrant nose with raspberry, boysenberry, red-plum and red-licorice aromas that lead to a quite fleshy, round and flavor-filled palate that finishes long and creamy. Drink or hold."

"Grown on a hillside, not desolate. Well, Thistledown made a man of me trying to open this bugger. I had to borrow my son’s Swiss Army Knife to cut through the stupid thick wax… Anyway, from the Smart vineyard in Clarendon. Raspberry, and then some more raspberry, rosy and musky perfume, baking spices. Medium-bodied, fleshy, ripe but slightly sticky tannin, ample fruit and perfume, a long finish with dried herb and raspberry in the aftertaste. More to come here."

Huon Hooke, www.therealreview.com.au
"Medium to deep red/purple colour, the bouquet subtle and reserved but evoking raspberry and Turkish Delight. The wine is deliciously fruit-sweet and perfumed throughout the palate, medium to full in body and soft in tannins, with refinement, and a lovely lightness of touch. A tad more structure than the Sands of Time, perhaps. The flavour lingers superbly on the back-palate and finish, and it really brings a smile to the face"

The Wine Advocate
"Thistledown's 2018 The Charming Man Single Vineyard Grenache hails from Clarendon. From a vineyard planted in 1971 on iron stone and clay, this medium to full-bodied wine offers cedary notes (it was aged in one-fifth new oak) layered over black cherries. It's taut and firm, framed by fine-grained tannins, so give it until 2021, then drink it over the next 10 years."
