Thomas Wines Elenay Shiraz 2017

Whilst Andrew Thomas has a focus for single vineyard shiraz, there’s always a little bit left over from the various barrels from the vineyards. The split this year is 53% Sweetwater, 27% Kiss, 13% Belford and 7% Dam Block parcels.

Attractively perfumed. Deep red rose petal richness, blue plum and hints of purple ‘wine gum’ with lovely garnishes from sweet, classy oak. A silky dark fruit experience with a fine, tight tannin structure that gives a fascia to the balanced medium-full muscle of the fruit. Length, length and length. A fine, classy finish. All wrapped up for the now, this is a medium to long term investment.

RRP: $55
Alc: 14.5%
Rating:  18.75/20
