'There is a broad spectrum of fruit flavours here, plum, spice, redcurrant and bay leaf joining cassis.  Controlled alcohol is a plus.'
94 Points - James Halliday

  • 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. New plantings include new Burgundian clones of chardonnay, a total of 20 hectares under vine. 

    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.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The fruit was gently machine harvested and processed into red fermenters where they are tenderly pumped over three times a day during fermentation to maximize colour extraction. When fermentation was complete, the wine was left on skins for an additional 7 days to develop some extra complexity before being transferred to a selection of fine French barriques and matured for 18 months. 

    TASTING NOTES

    Deep crimson red with a slight purple edge. A complex display of fine fruit and rich dark berry, blackcurrant and cassis characters flaunt openly followed by an attractive, delicate array of aromas of violets, elegant spice and subtle mint. Luscious, rich rounded mouth watering flavours fill the palate upfront reflecting the nose superbly followed by a succulent, fleshy but firm texture. The wine is tightly structured and the fruit is complimented with a hint of toasty cinnamon oak and spice on the mid palate. The finish shows great length where the delightful flavours lingers on endlessly with a persistent satisfaction
