Our wonderful new wine sponsor, Thompson Estate is impressing wine aficionados, critics and visitors to Sculpture by the Sea alike with their range which includes Chardonnays and Cabernets.
The Thompson Estate vineyard is located in the highly desirable Wilyabrup subregion of Margaret River, the home of other famous Margaret River Chardonnays such as Vasse Felix, Cullen and Pierro, as well as some of the greatest Australian Cabernets. The high calibre production of Cabernet in this region is mainly due to the region having the ideal climate for the production of Bordeaux style wines.
The 2008 Thompson Estate Chardonnay is medium-bodied on the palate and is beautifully balanced with clean, natural acidity and a lingering aftertaste. It is similar to its 2007 counterpart which was awarded the trophy for the best Chardonnay in the world at the London International Wine and Spirits Competition, although it is more fully developed in style.
Throughout the exhibition, Thompson Estate is pleased to offer a 20% discount to customers who order wine on the Thompson Estate website, making it the perfect opportunity to sample the range or order a favourite.
