Thompson Estate Margaret River Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2017
"Tangy and moreish" (Halliday) Margaret River SSB with 92 points. Superb!
Margaret River’s 5 Red Star Thompson Estate boasts a state-of-the-art winery, and vineyards first planted in 1997 by cardiologist Peter Thompson, inspired by visits to some of the world’s finest winemaking regions. The consistently high scoring wines are made by Bob Cartwright, formerly of Leeuwin Estate. “There’s some depth and significant flavour to this blend – white blossom, lemon zest and juice, stone fruit, straw and lots of herbal notes. It’s tangy and moreish with a very tight palate linking a minerally thread of acidity that cuts right through the middle and continues long on the finish ... 92 points” (Halliday).
