Manjimup truffle egg tart and salad.
Older French Oak 2-3 weeks
Pale straw with a green tinge and brilliant clarity.
An intricate display of delicate but lifted citrus, lemon and lime aromas with a grassy, passionfruit edge rises out from the glass. A suggestion of lush tropical fruits and a hint of cinnamon oak spice adds extra depth and complexity to lead the consumer into temptation.
The palate is clean and refreshing with a rich full flavour which reflects the nose sensationally. With great balance, complexity and lovely natural acid, the flavours flow throughout the pallet seamlessly and finishes with great length and delicate persistence.
Both the Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc varieties were picked at optimum ripeness and fermented separately. Each variety had a few hours skin contact and a portion of the Sauvignon Blanc was barrel fermented to add further structure, dimension, and complexity to the wine. To retain the freshness and quality this wine was bottled soon after vintage. The 201314 season started with a very wet but mild Winter which led to a slightly earlier than usual budburst. Spring conditions were favourable and the summer ripening period was generally quite mild with very few heatwave events. Although mild, the ripening period was perfect for rapid fruit ripening which rather compressed vintage 2014. The canopies of the Cabernet vines at Thompson Estate were in excellent condition to allow the fruit to 'hang' on the vines to develop ideal phenolic and flavour ripeness.
