Wine of the Week AU

Thompson Estate The Specialist Chardonnay 2022, Margaret River, AUD $85

Founder Peter Thompson was a cardiologist and was mentored by fellow cardiologist and Vasse Felix founder Tom Cullity. Both planted their vines at Wilyabrup.

Smoky/oaky bouquet with toasted nuts, smoky char timber and underlying grapefruit/citrus aromas, the fruit asserting itself more on palate where the wine is very intense, concentrated and persistent. A generously oaked, powerful flagship chardonnay with typical Margaret River grapefruit character. (Screwcap)
