2017 Thompson Estate Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon
Peter and Jane Thompson planted vines on their property in 1994 (their neighbour is Vasse Felix). Prior to stating their own wine brand, they were shareholders in the Pierro and Fire Gully vineyards. They employed Bib Cartwright (formerly Leeuwin Estate winemaker) to make their wines. Their Cabernet Sauvignon has a small portion of Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Merlot in the blend. It’s a generous wine with blackcurrant and cinnamon aromas and medium weighted palate.
