The CEO Elegant Components are selectively, chosen from parcels of fruit on the Thompson Estate vineyard. To complement the elegance of our Cabernet Sauvignon, a small amount of Merlot is added resulting in a well-structured vibrant wine of considerable richness and depth.
2011 CEO Elegant Cabernet Merlot by Thompson
Deep rich crimson red in colour. Vibrant array of black cherry, chocolate, fruitcake, dark plum, mulberries and a hint of eucalypt and mint combines beautifully with vanilla French oak characters on the nose.
Medium bodied and well structured, this wine displays rich blackcurrant and cherry fruit flavours, soft tannins and mocha undertones very similar to the 2010. Great balance, fresh acid and a long finish ensure this wine is drinking well now and will develop further complexity with cellaring.
