Thomson Estate, W&J Clare Valley Shiraz

W&J Clare Valley Shiraz

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

Grown in our Clare Valley estate vineyards, and selected from our 18.29 hectares of Shiraz plantings.  The richness of the fruit in its natural state is protected and nurtured through minimal intervention in the winery.  Careful use of French oak provides a support and complexity to fruit richness and regional expression.    

AROMA

Intense mulberry, cassis and plums on the nose with a hint of pepper.

PALATE
A layered palate of juicy dark mulberry and pepper is balanced by the gentle use of French oak to provide a silky tannin structure Clare is renowned for.  A soft, smooth and elegantly structured wine.

Savour with roasted red meats, game and rich sauce pasta dishes or strong cheeses.  Vegan Friendly.
