What this wine demonstrates best is Andrew Thomas' ability to blend parcels of his top fruit and create a wine of supreme class. Soon to be released, run at this, don't walk.

I was offered the opportunity to have a look at the 2018 Thomas Wines reds prior to their release. This Sweetwater oozes adorable precision.
Just up the road from the Sweetwater vineyard you can find the home for this Belford. Grown on 20 year old vines on red loam over limestone, this is a deep and powerful type.

The Thomas Wines flagship white. From the iconic Braemore vineyard on Hermitage Road, it was planted in 1969. A sublime expression on Hunter Semillon.
Andrew Thomas loves Suzie Quatro and perhaps this is his tribute to her? A blend of various Hunter Valley parcels, there's some rock n roll power and density here.

Andrew Thomas certainly has a way of finding unique fruit parcels from around the Hunter Valley. This is the second release of The Cote which sits on a steep slope around 190m above. For those familiar with the region, it's near the Audrey Wilkinson winery.
Planted in 1976, the O.C. comes from a site adjacent to Oakey Creek Road, this is where the Thomas Wines Semillons start to get serious as the sophistication dials up.
An expressive and playful Semillon from the western fringe of the Hunter Valley that's ready to go now.
