Peppery spice driven wine with green peppercorns and sweet red fruits. Medium bodied as it should be with Hunter reds. Stylish wine. Single vineyard wine grown on a Hunter property called Cote d’Or, hence the name.
Thomas The Cote Shiraz 2017, Hunter Valley, NSW
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
