Thomas Wines Belford Shiraz 2018

Only a recent addition to the Thomas Wines stable and with only 131 dozen bottled, this wine is exclusive to Thommo’s Wine Club members. The vineyard sits next to the Sweetwater Estate and as such, shares similar the same sort of reddish loam soil, spotted with ironstone.

Thomas Wines, Belford, Shiraz, Hunter Valley, 2018

Blue fruits, almost blueberry muffin crust-like with dusty cocoa, red apple, warm blue plum, fresh turned earth, and with a touch of smoky special fried rice. Life and a pulse, similar to the Sweetwater it has a similar pulsating energy but with a fuller intensity. The tannins, velvet and exact, striding in lockstep with signature oak through the long finish.
