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.

Winemaking  

Our Semillon is picked from low yielding mature vines which provide rich mouthfeel and flavour with suppleness and structure. 

Sauvignon Blanc in blended to provide the herbaceous lift and picked early evening in order to maintain the clarity in the fruit in cooler parts of the day. 

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

Colour   Pale lemon green.

Nose   Bright citrus notes of lemon, curd and subtle biscuit.


Palate   Crisp acidity in this blend combined lemony and melon  flavours with a soft middle palate.  Angelica spice and  provides complexity to a refreshing style.

Vegan and Vegetarian Friendly

Food Pairing:  

Serve well chilled as an aperitif or with seafood and salad.
