Thomson Estate, Limestone Cliffs Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
Limestone Cliffs Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
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.
The Riverland region has the greatest days of sunshine, a pristine climate and limestone soils for premium grape growing. These soils are visible in the Limestone Cliffs along the banks providing a majestic display at sunset.
Zesty tropical fruits of lifted passionfruit and guava are refreshing and persistent. Served well chilled as the sun goes down. Proudly a vegan and vegetarian friendly wine.

The wines are fermented together in stainless steel tanks, to ensure a seamless integration between the two varieties which lifts the floral flavour profile.
