The Thistledown Wine Company was founded by Giles Cooke and Fergal Tynan, both MWs, with the helping hand of Peter Leske. Together they craft small batch wines that highlight great vineyard sites and smart winemaking. Their wines are refined in their texture and detail and are created to compliment food rather than overwhelm it. Their homebase is in Adelaide Hills, where they work with pristine fruit sourced from iconic vineyard sites.
Grown in the cooler Adelaide Hills region of South Australia, the focus is on site selection and then individual barrel selection to craft the ultimate expression of the Chardonnay grape. Hand picking, whole bunch pressing and natural fermentation in barrel enhance the pristine quality of the fruit while the selection in barrel allows us to pick out only those barrels that show the energy, nerve and complexity of which great Chardonnay is capable.
