Somewhere near the Seaview end of McLaren Vale's Chapel Hill Road, a perfunctory passerine perched her pincers astride a pair of power poles and saw herself alit. Down she went amongst the dry grown branches of an old Grenache vineyard, setting the valuable veterans ablaze. The scorched site eventually came to the attention of a winemaking trio, the Messrs Leske, Tynan & Cooke, Masters of Wine and a venerable vintner, all driven by a consuming passion to make greater Grenache. Thistledown vintage very small amounts of the most extraordinary Grenache. Beautifully detailed and conspicuously elegant, their floral bouquets and graceful finish emulate the aromatic..

There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention.

Templar Vineyard occupies two gently sloping terraces above Awatere River, each picked to optimal flavour ripeness and processed separately to provide a number of blending options. All parcels spend time on skin contact to enhance the intensity, followed by a gentle press, cold settling and racking. Cool fermentations are employed to retain purity of flavour and aromatics. Upon completion, batches remain on yeast lees for several months to build richness and mouthfeel. Components are racked and assembled, gently fined, filtered and immediately bottled, preserving the purity of flavour, freshness and superb palate richness.
Vibrant, light straw colour. A beautifully intense and lively wine, overflowing with aromas of ripe gooseberry, melon and passionfruit with hints of grapefruit, nettles and lime. A pure expression of Marlborough, mouthfilling and juicy with vibrant fruit, fantastic mid palate richness and weight of fruit, finishing rich and racy with a crisp line of acidity and excellent length. A match to salmon, green beans and potato salad.
