Thompson Estate Four Chambers Cabernet Shiraz 2017

Special Price $20.00 Regular Price $25.00
Winemaker Paul Dixon believes 2017 was one of the very best vintages he’s seen and the proof is in your glass… this wine is of a quality and depth of flavour you won’t normally find at $25. It is a complex wine offering dark fruits, dark chocolate, tomato leaf, plums, white pepper and violets. This really is a beautiful wine, delicious now and with a minimum of 5 years cellaring potential.

Thompson Estate is a relatively small Wilyabrup based Margaret River winery who emphasise quality production. They are rated 5 red stars by James Halliday, have a state of the art winery and an exceptional winemaker in Paul Dixon, who cut his teeth at Vasse Felix before moving to Thompson Estate in 2012. The vineyard is in the process of becoming certified as biodynamic. Whilst younger than other close and celebrated neighbours (think Moss Wood, Cullen, Pierro, Woodlands, Vasse Felix), Thompson Estate is already producing exceptional wines and will no doubt continue to improve.

History

Much of the regions success dates back to the late 1800's when Italian immigrants Albert Credaro, Jimmy Meleri and Domenic Garuccio planted vines to make some of the good old table wines from the Old Country.
