Thomas Synergy Semillon 2020

Winemaker’s Comments
This wine is a blend of selected parcels of old vine Hunter Valley Semillon that we are fortunate enough to have access to. The distictive characters of each vineyard work in synergy to create a wine with its own unique personality.

Part of what makes all our single-vineyard wines such benchmarks for the region, is the absolute no compromise approach to selecting only the very best parcels. This leaves behind a number of ‘de-classified’ parcels which we put together to create this blend. The lions share of the vineyards that would normally go together for our Synergy Semillon blend are the Braemore, OC and Fordwich Hill. However, the 2020 vintage Synergy Semillon is 100% Braemore Semillon. This wine delivers outstanding quality for every day drinking at an amazingly affordable price.

Tasting Notes
A brilliant pale yellow/green in colour, this wine has a generosity of fruit not usually expected in Hunter Semillon. Floral aromas of orange blossom, Thai spices and lanolin dance around the glass, and are kept in check by a linear, lime-like focus. The palate offers pleasing flavours with ripe pear and lemon/melon fruit, and a lengthy, subliminally taut acidity providing a pleasing freshness to the finish. An absolute perfect accompaniment to fresh seafood dishes. Seriously smashable…..

Winemaker – Andrew Thomas
Given my family background, it was inevitable that I would work in wine. My early inspiration came from my father, Wayne Thomas who had a distinguished career making wine where I was raised in McLaren Vale.

During my formative winemaking years, despite being groomed for a possible winemaking career in South Australia, I developed a deep passion for finesse, and the more subtle and savoury structured wines of the Hunter Valley .

After graduating with a degree in Oenology at Roseworthy Agricultural College, I began my winemaking journey at Tyrrell’s Vineyards. During 13 years guidance under the legendary Murray Tyrrell at Tyrrells Wines, I gained a great respect for, and understanding of the two signature varieties of the Hunter Valley – semillon and shiraz.

My thirst for more knowledge and winemaking experience was quenched with vintages in Sonoma, Tuscany, Piedmont and Provence; but the desire to make world class wines under my own label could no longer be denied, it was time to go out on my own.

Thomas Wines was established in 1997, with a clear and focused objective to specialise in single vineyard Hunter Valley semillon and shiraz. Over the years I have formed close and collaborative alliances with an impressive folio of local growers. These growers own and operate arguably some of the Hunter Valley’s most distinguished sites, producing world class, uniquely regional styles. Each wine is destined to showcase its unique vineyard signature and express a real sense of place.

Whilst I have always applied a no compromise, attention to detail approach to my winemaking, I truly believe that 90% of the quality lies in the vineyard. The key to great wine is ‘keeping it simple’ to preserve that potential quality from the vine through to the bottle.

At the end of the day, I just really love making wine….

Outside of wine, my favourite things are my four awesome sons, the mighty Sydney Swans, top-shelf rum, pineapple and Top Deck chocolate.
