Sometimes you drink a wine and enjoy the challenge to your senses that it provides. Massive flavours, overbearing tannin, fruits and spice just bouncing all over the shop. Other times, you’ve just finished work for the week, it’s raining outside and you’ve just ordered some food from the local pizza joint. Not through UberEats though, they’re evil. This Grenache from Thistledown Wines places itself comfortably into the latter scenario.

Sweet plum and cherry greet you on the nose. Our immediate reaction was to comment on the sweetness that felt so present right from the start. The fruits feel bright but full and we felt instantly drawn to take a sip. This might have been the aromatics, or perhaps just the week that was finally over.

The palate brings a levelled up intensity to the fruit and delivers a lovely weight to the wine. Little flickers of toffee poke through, it’s sweet, but not uncomfortably so, even for someone who generally prefers a drier style wine. The tannis are restrained and deliver just the right amount of support before a long silky finish. It is one of those wines that gives you enough to over-think if you’d like, but it’s best enjoyed in conjunction with a quality conversation and a second bottle.

This is the type of wine you’d happily give a glass to the people who “don’t drink red wine” but don’t mind the occasional rose. A wine that is incredibly drinkable for all the right reasons.
