Semillon Verjuice

Semillon Verjuice

Verjuice is the very acidic (non alcoholic) juice made from pressing unripe Semillon grapes. It tastes tart, a bit like lemon juice or vinegar, but not as harsh. Use it in cooking to bring out the gentlest lift and brightness of flavour in a vast array of dishes.

Six Degrees Semillon

Six Degrees Semillon

This is a very new and exciting style for Hunter Semillon, being made as an ‘off dry’ style. First produced in 2008, the inspiration being my love of those German Rieslings from the Mosel made in a similar vein. The key to this style is the wonderful balance between the residual sweetness and the limey acidity.

Sweetwater Shiraz

Sweetwater Shiraz

Another individual vineyard Hunter Valley shiraz in our range, this one hailing from a vineyard located at Sweetwater Ridge in the northern (Belford) end of the Lower Hunter Valley. Planted in 1998, the red/brown loamy soils over limestone are what give this wine its distinctive floral lift and character.

Motel Block Shiraz

Motel Block Shiraz

This vineyard was planted by the legendary Johnnie Walker in 1967. Having tasted some amazing wines made from these vines over the years, this was the vineyard I was most interested in when I started my own brand in 1997. Unfortunately, it was well and truly spoken for at that time. Fast forward a decade, to my surprise the lease over this vineyard became available, so naturally I jumped at the opportunity.

Elenay Shiraz

Elenay Shiraz

In a perfect world everything fits into its place. But sometimes, just sometimes, you find that the square peg/round hole syndrome is alive and well. Elenay Shiraz isn’t an accident, it’s just that a few barrels that were designated to be the famous Kiss Shiraz didn’t quite make the cut, and a few barrels of Sweetwater vineyard Shiraz likewise just didn’t quite match that wine’s style.

DJV Shiraz

DJV Shiraz

Inspired by the winemaking legends from previous generations such as Maurice O’Shea and Murray Tyrrell, this is a modern spin on traditional Hunter Valley Shiraz. The name ‘DJV’ refers to the feeling of Déjà vu that you may well experience when tasting this wine, which has been made using a variety of traditional techniques. It is quite intentionally a lighter, ‘Hunter River Burgundy’ style.

Kiss Shiraz

Kiss Shiraz

Kiss Shiraz is a cheeky name for a serious wine. It is an individual vineyard Hunter Valley Shiraz, grown on the tough clay/loam soils of the Pokolbin Estate vineyard (planted 1969). These naturally low cropping vines consistently produce fruit with exceptional depth and concentration. This is the benchmark Shiraz for Thomas Wines.
