Thomas Wines, 'DJV' Shiraz (2007)

Hunter Valley, NSW
13%, screwcap, non organic, RRP $35

This wine combines the two strengths of the Hunter Valley, Shiraz and...Semillon (9%). The semillon was picked early and provided natural acidification. A lovelly fragrant bouquet. The palate was striking with silky mouthfeel. Great structure and length - 94.

These notes were from a tasting at the Small Winemakers Centre in the Hunter Valley a couple of years ago. No doubt this wine sold out a long time ago, but I stumbled upon my notes recently and decided that it should at least be mentioned on the blog.
