Jane and Peter Thompson purchased the Thompson Estate property in 1994, and the first plantings of chardonnay and pinot were in 1997, followed by the cabernet plantings in 1998. From the outset at Thompson Estate, the focus has been on high quality wine production and this has been recognized in a large number of wine show medals and accolades from the wine press. The most treasured has been the recognition by James Halliday, Australia’s premier wine critic, that Thompson Estate is a Five Red Star winery, placing it in the top echelon of Australian wineries.
Elegant pale/medium straw with brilliant clarity and a subtle green edge. Aromas of lifted peach, nectarine stone fruits, lemon/lime citrus, and cinnamon/clove spice with a hint of nutmeg and nougat. A slight wild ferment funk gives an element of depth and richness to the nose.
A rich and vibrant palate with a soft, seductive creamy texture, and exquisite white stone fruit flavours fill the mouth. Well integrated supple oak and persistent, tight yet seamless acid lines linger on resulting in a crisp, clean, captivating finish.
