Thomas Wines DJV Shiraz 2010 (Hunter Valley, NSW)
13.5%, Screwcap, $30
Perhaps my least favourite wine amongst this years Thomas Wines reds. It just looks a little candied really.
A rounded, soft and even slightly rubbery red this year, with a somewhat confected edge. Raspberry jam aplenty. Soft palate looks very pretty but just a bit short and light. Oh so youthful though! I didn’t feel the love, even if it is well made and clearly some quality Shiraz fruit in there.
Score: 16.5/20 88/100
Would I buy it? No.
