PLEIADES XXX

Sean Thackrey

Grapes Syrah, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre, Viognier
Colour Red
Origin USA, California
ABV 14%

The object of Pleiades Old Vines is to be delicious, delight the jaded, irritate the Wine Police, and go well with anything red wine goes well with. This edition is dominated by Pinot Noir along with Sangiovese, Viognier, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Petite Sirah to name but a few. Fragrant and voluptuous when first released, it will become far more subtle and complex with a year or two of bottle age, although such restraint might be too much to ask of most of us. L&S (Dec 2023)

Sean Thackrey

Since 1980 until his death in 2022, Sean Thackrey had been producing wines that are quite simply extraordinary wines that have developed a loyal, die-hard following - and rightfully so. not only for the incredible quality and complexity, but also for the relative value they present. Sean had used some unique winemaking techniques, often drawing from historic, sometimes ancient, winemaking practices from all over the world. Famously leaving the freshly picked bunches out, in open-topped bins, for a day and a night under the stars. Grapes were sourced from many locations throughout California, and the wines were made in a very artisanal way at his small Bolinas winery. Self-taught, and with clear natural talent and flair, Sean was the antithesis of corporate wine-making so rife in this part of the wine world and will be sorely missed.
