Ray Jordan has reviewed Thompson Estate wines in his latest WA Wine Guide 2019 and we are delighted to have received two ratings of 97 points, along with several other fantastic reviews:
97 points - The Specialist Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
"Terrific wine from this outstanding Margaret River vintage. A stunning combination of elegance and refinement with underlying Margaret River power driving it. Leafy notes of blackcurrant and black olive dominate the aromas with subtle, understated, savoury chocolate edges. The palate delivers its concentrated powerpack with such poise and balance. A super wine".
97 points - The Specialist Chardonnay 2015
"This range was introduced a few years ago as a signal that these mature vines are starting to really turn out some mighty good fruit, perfect for turning into something special. Tighter and more elegant, but equally powerful compared to the 2014. Love the mineral savoury edges that sit comfortably in the intense and concentrated Chardonnay fruit. Lovely white-peach and cashew characters, with a lift of vanilla bean and savouriness".
95 points - Thompson Estate Chardonnay 2017
"There is beautiful fruit purity in this pristine and precise Margaret River Chardonnay. Aromas of cashew and light butterscotch with a little vanilla pod. The palate is typically textured and powerful, but held with a controlled tight line through to a very long finish. A thoroughly satisfying and appealing Chardonnay".
92 points - Thompson Estate SSB 2017
"A delicately balanced blended white. This Semillon has been barrel fermented to introduce complexity and texture, yet retains a lively fragrant freshness that is so appealing about this combo. Crunchy minerality extends easily to a very long finish".
Four Chambers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2017
"Bright and punchy blend that puts together all the fragrant freshness of these two varieties. Lovely current-drinking wine with a crunchy mouthfeel and lip-smacking acidity that sustains the palate".
