Thomson Estate, Toolunka Cabernet Sauvignon

Toolunka Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

Named after an ancient flood plain of the majestic River Murray in South Australia. Known for the greatest days of sunshine, the Riverland region has a pristine climate for premium grape growing on our limestone soils. Juicy blackberry fruits are balanced by hints of spicy French oak and soft, flavoursome finish.

Ideal with barbequed meats, stir fry or antipasti. Enjoy now or keep for up to 4 years.

FRUIT

This Cabernet Sauvignon was selected at vintage from our family property at Glen Devlin on the River Murray.  These mature vines are an average of 40 years on limestone which provides fruit intensity and varietal expression.  The 2016 vintage produced reds of outstanding quality in the Riverland 

WINEMAKING

The richness of the fruit in its natural state meant that minimal intervention was required in the winery.  Separate parcels were left on skins for some time in order to develop the keen tannin structure, then fermented in stainless steel with the influence of French oak.    

AROMA

Lifted aromas of blackcurrant and blueberries have soft vanilla and cedar notes.

PALATE
Full-bodied with juicy blackberry fruit and subtle oak.  Smooth, luscious and soft it can be enjoy on its own or with barbequed lamb, stir fries and antipasti. 

Ideal with barbequed meats, stir fry or antipasti. 

Enjoy now or keep for up to 5 years.
