Thistledown The Quickening Shiraz “Eden & Ebenezer” 2019

The Quickening Shiraz “Eden & Ebenezer”

Varenummer (SKU): 30267 Kategorier: ,

Nogle gange kan Barossa-shiraz være så tyk, at man kan skære den i skiver. Giles og Fergal vil have friskheden og elegancen tilbage og lader klaserne vildgære i hel tilstand med en forholdsvis kort fadlagring efterfølgende. Det giver hindbæreleksir med rosmarin, salvie og smuk blødhed. Den ekstremt stenede og mineralholdige jord giver klar mineralitet. 93 point hos Suckling.
 
Thistledown er ikke bare endnu et vinhus. Det er som at finde ud af, at to mekanikere har gået i en garage og puslet med en bil, der kan køre fra Ferrari. Med andre ord (kunst)håndværk i den helt vilde mesterklasse. Håndplukket og håndlavet af de allerbedste druer, vildgæret i hele klaser og uden industrielle tilsætninger. To Masters of Wine, Giles og Fergal, står for driften og de styrer benhårdt efter friskhed, terroir og good old Aussie juiciness. Vinene er ikke i hverdagsprislejet, men stadig regulære kup i deres liga.

Beheading an ‘immortal’ producers a burst of energy called a ‘Quickening’. Not to be confused with ‘The Pentaveret’, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers. Cool fragrance of dried flowers, sage and thyme, black fruit and spice. It’s kind of juicy in the blackcurrant and blackberry department, with well-knit tannin giving a confident but gentle grip, fresh feel, and a long and subtly mentholated peppery finish. Very nice. You could well crave it fortnightly.

A smoothly delivered shiraz that has deep, fleshy and seductive appeal. The fresh blackberry, plum and mulberry aromas are nicely dosed with oak spice and deliver such soft, smooth style on the palate. Really effortless drinkability. Drink now. Screw cap.

92 points The Real Review
Deep, bold purple/red colour, with a lovely spicy, plummy, fragrance including various berries, the palate fleshy and supple, smooth and engaging, with delicious flavour and balance. Some cola and Campari nuances. Very soft, fleshy tannins give it a lovely silken texture.

90 points Robert Parker
Cedar and mocha shadings accent the dark plum and blackberry fruit of Thistledown’s 2019 The Quickening Shiraz, a blend of fruit from Eden Valley and Ebenezer. Medium to full-bodied, it’s ripe, velvety and delicious but without the “wow” factor of the stunning 2018.
