Thomson Estate Double Pass Shiraz 2017 (12 x 750mL) SA

Winemaking - Vine-dried grapes from our estate block 46, were fermented into concentrated flavour and richness. The fruit started to bag and pucker, created integrated fruit sugars, acid and tannins,. It was then

passed back over already fermented Shiraz. The result is full-bodied complexity, layered with intriguing characters for a well balanced and lingering palate.

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.

Double Pass Shiraz is created in the blending of two parcels of estate grown fruit. Vine dried grapes, which have richly textured and powerful complexity are fermented and then blended with already fermented estate

Shiraz to create the Double Pass. Ripe blackberry fruits and silky tannins are alive with richness. Best served with sauce-laden meats and dishes with abundant flavours.
