Wine House Hunter Valley

Thomas Wines 2016 Sweetwater Shiraz

Thomas Wines 2016 Sweetwater Shiraz

Another individual vineyard Hunter Valley shiraz in our 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.

The Sweetwater shiraz is true to form with its distinctive floral notes of violets and potpourri, but the 2016 vintage has provided a pretty, perfumed red and blue fruited frame, and a lengthy, supple tannin profile. The deliciously intense mid palate provides some awesome current drinking appeal, but will also reward with some patient cellaring.
