DJV means De Ja Vu, as in a return to the ways of making wines from the great Hunter makers of yesteryear. This was tasted blind as part of a 2014 Shiraz review.
Thomas Wines, DJV Shiraz, Hunter Valley, 2014
Core of pretty black fruit/boysenberry with a distinct “green” line (thanks to the Semillon verjuice). Lovely fleshy plum fruit flesh to the bones, acid sits firm across the teeth. Oak plays little part, fruit is first and foremost. Sandy tannins wash strongly. Have it now or later: your call. It’s Shiraz Jim, but not quite as we know it.
