This tiny vineyard, grown on the great soils of Pokolbin Estate, sits just across from the vineyard that provides the fruit for the Kiss. The vineyard is finally mature enough to be labelled under its own, while previously providing input to Thommo’s “blends” of Two Of A Kind, Synergy and Elenay.
Thomas Wines,The Dam Block, Shiraz, Hunter Valley, 2018
Deep and furry with velvet, moss, jubey/Throatie, tar, blue plum halves and coffee essence. Medium full and with a dark seriousness to the weight. The dark jube feel carries through the palate with understated, floor mat tannins and a surprising amount of acidity driving the intensity and allowing the length to carry long.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
