Thomas Wines 2007 Sweetwater Shiraz
Another individual vineyard Hunter Valley shiraz in Thommo's range, this one hailing from a vineyard located at Sweetwater Ridge in the northern (Belford) end of the Lower Hunter Valley. Planted in 1998, the red/brown loamy soils over limestone are what give this wine its distinctive floral lift and character. The relatively vigourous vines are usually crop thinned to around 4-5 tonnes per Hectare each year which ensures even ripening and produces wonderfully concentrated fruit.
From an outstanding Hunter Valley vintage, the 2007 Sweetwater Shiraz is drinking beautifully. Still showing the distinctive floral notes of violets and potpourri and a lengthy, supple tannin profile which has softened with age.
