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.
