Wine Summary
Thistledown was started by friends Giles Cooke and Fergal TynanIn, who had met when studying for the Masters of Wine exams. In their fun-loving 92pt Thistledown Cloud Cuckoo Land, Italian varietals from the Riverland come together in harmony. A vibrant, textural white with hints of almond blossom, quince and ripe pear, it's tangy, almost exotic, but pithy and delicious. It makes a great aperitif – Ned Goodwin MW in The Halliday Wine Companion asks if it might be "the best in the country?".

Wine Summary
The Clare Valley's dynamic Claymore Wines celebrates a love of wine, music and football (of the round ball type). Their labels celebrate some of the winemaker's favourite albums and songs. "This label, true to its musical roots, represents a regional collaboration with local Clare Valley grape grower partners to showcase our region's Queen at its best. This regional blend comprises selected parcels from both our Estate Watervale Riesling vineyards along with parcels from Auburn and Sevenhill." A delicious Riesling that's won Gold and 94pts. "Youthfully charming and elegantly fragrant, the bouquet shows Gala apple, lemon zest and white floral aromas, followed by a juicy palate offering bright fruit flavours with fine texture and firm acidity, finishing refreshing and lingering" (Sam Kim, Wine Orbit).

Adaptaur Reserve Durif 2022
Named after the cattle, an ideal match with a juicy rump
Normally $23.00 a bottle
Adaptaur Reserve Durif
Wine file
Red - Full Bodied
14.0% ABV

750.00 ml
31 December, 2028
Wine Summary
The Adaptaur is a tropically-adapted Bos taurus beef cattle breed which was developed in Australia in the 1950s from crosses between Herefords and Shorthorns. Like the bull, the Adaptaur Reserve Durif is the perfect example of careful selection, hailing from selected vineyards in South Australia. The result is a wine that has intensity, decadent and dark with rich flavours of plum and spicy black fruit. Earthy tannins are well balance. An obvious food wine that would do well with the heartiest beef meals.

Wine Summary
For the Marauding Vintners, real wine is not a commodity, but an expression of people, place and time, where art and nature merge. They know the real deal is often found off the beaten track, and devote time to tracking down the genuine characters. French born, Ms S still reigns in Bordeaux, select Loire venues and on stages in Sauternes, but is now a world fashion icon. A superstar in New Zealand with performances of impact and intensity, she might appear elsewhere in tropical guise, or adopt a smoky mystique and the name 'Fumé'. She flirts with partners, but proudly sports her Ms title. Here in Adelaide Hills, she's chilled and relaxed, combining fresh tropical charm and chic, crisp elegance. Lovely passionfruit, lime and lemongrass aromas. Crisp and crunchy palate with tightly-wound, refreshing acidity. At the centre, a refined fruit core of peach, lemon and gooseberry made textural with slate-like minerality.
