Thomas Wines Murphy's Semillon 2017
Thomas Wines Murphy's Semillon 2017 is made by one of the Hunter Valley’s most renowned winemakers, Andrew Thomas. Nationally and internationally acclaimed for their exceptional, single vineyard Hunter Valley wines, Thomas Wines has gained a somewhat ‘cult status’ for its small range of personality imbued wines, many offering pure current drinking pleasure, as well as remarkable cellaring potential.
The first vintage was produced in 1997, with an absolute focus and determination to specialise in producing top shelf examples of the two signature varieties of the Hunter Valley, semillon and shiraz. Over the years Thomas Wines have gathered an impressive folio of local growers. Each own and operate arguably some of the Hunter valley’s most distinguished sites, producing world class, uniquely regional styles. Each wine showcases its unique vineyard signature and expresses a real sense of place.
The 2017 vintage was a hot and dry vintage producing relatively ripe semillon
From the deep sandy soils adjacent to Black Creek on Wilderness Road in the Lovedale subregion
Subtly different to Pokolbin semillon - More in the grassy fuit and grapefruit citrus spectrum
Delicious current drinking but should cellar well over the next 5-8 years
This wine was bottled 6 June 2017 with a very small production of 147 dozen it is expected this to sell out quickly. Alcohol 10.8 pH 3.0 Acidity 7.0. Visit Thomas Wines at their cellar door within Estate Tuscany on the corner of Hermitage Road & Mistletoe Lane, Pokolbin or online
