Thomas Wines Belford Shiraz 2017


The second of two new labels from the Thomas Wines stable for 2017. The Belford Shiraz comes from a block backing onto his Sweetwater Shiraz vineyard.

Only 130 dozen produced, this wine has been made exclusively for wine club members.

Dark fruits and boysenberries hustle for attention with a shimmer of brown spices and faint licks of dark chocolate. Hunter Valley earth raises its hand - nice. I keep going back to swirling the glass as pretty scents reach out their hand with a welcoming embrace. This Shiraz grew on me with time in the glass and it will grow into its own skin furthermore with more bottle age. Great stuff!

Drink 2020 to ten years+
