When I arrived at Thistle Hill they were busy working with an old basket press, trying to
press some of the grapes that they had managed to salvage from the elements (it had been
raining for the best part of two weeks). This is a small winery producing a solid range of
wines, most impressive of which was the Cabernet Sauvignon. Another organic producer
(wines available in UK from Vintage Roots). The Shiraz had sold out and wasn't available

Slightly honeyed, with some citrus fruit. Pleasant.
Made with bought-in grapes. Citrus character. OK
Honeyed with a touch of oak. Quite harmonious.
1997 Pinot Noir
Some cherry fruit on the nose, which follows through to the palate. Full bodied; quite
dense and tannic. Good.
1994 Cabernet Sauvignon
A really appealing wine. There's a mix of blackcurrant fruit, dusty, dry texture and firm
tannins. Full of character and really well put together. I bought some of this.
