Thomas Wines Sweetwater Shiraz 2013
I reckon Andrew Thomas could charge double and still get it. This is class at a neat price.
Gentle peppery spice and very attractive purple flower florals. Buckets of juicy red berry fruit wrapped by savoury tones. Hunter earth ringing true.
Every time I go back those purple flower and powerful violet aromas create a sense of uplift and vibrance. The finish is long and laced with a dusting of spice before some dark plums bump in to tease before moving to dried herbs.
Still a little tight with its best years ahead. Give it another year or two when it will slip on its party suit. A wine which will easily kick on for 10 years.
Generous. Luscious. Delicious.
