Thomas Wines DJV Shiraz 2011 (Hunter Valley, NSW)
13%, Screwcap, $30
Always an odd wine this is. Placed up against Thommo’s other reds, it’s very different indeed. Unsurprising given the 12% co-fermented Semillon verjuice, which turns it into something closer to the Hunter Shiraz style of yore (much less concentrated).
Score: 16.8/20, 89/100
Would I buy it? Not quite.
