2019 Halliday 5 star winery

Thomson Estate, Robinson Road Merlot

Robinson Road Merlot

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 a Merlot vineyard off Robinson Road, and a path leading to a beautiful view over the vines.

Vibrant berry fruit flavours with hints of pepper and spice are accompanied by subtle oak.  Ideal with red meat, pasta or cheese. 

Enjoy now or keep for up to 5 years.
