Thomson Estate, W&J Clare Valley Super Clare

W&J Clare Valley Super Clare

1838 was the year Walter Thomson, with wife Jane, arrived in Australia and established a winemaking tradition.  Faithful to his approach, our estate grown parcels are carefully tended by our vignerons to create wines of great intensity. 

Set in the northern range of the cool and picturesque Clare Valley, the high altitude provides finesse and delicate power to our mature vines.

WINEMAKING

Sourced from our estate vineyards in the northern ranges of the Clare Valley and vinified in small batches, the components were aged in French oak barriques for 18-24 months.  The resulting Super Clare blend is an opulent wine with persistence and length.

Colour 

Dark garnet red with ruby hue.

Aroma 

Clove and plum blossom with scorched almond and porcini mushroom.

Palate  

Firm silky tannins provide the backbone to this commanding style.  Ripe dark chocolate, savoury  cherry and blackcurrant fruits are complexed with plush French oak spice and a nuttiness akin to pecan pie.  Vegan Suitable.
