About The Wine
The Kiss is the flagship Shiraz for local Hunter Valley winemaking legend Andrew Thomas.
It once again comes from the Pokolbin Estate Vineyard, planted back in 1969. Year in, year out, this produces the best Shiraz at Thommo's disposal. This gorgeous wine typifies the style of Shiraz the Hunter has become famous for; perfumed, medium-to-full bodied and savoury.
The 2014 vintage sold out in a matter of weeks. The 2015 is a little more tempered in style, more medium bodied than the last, but it looks fantastic in the glass. Thommo describes it as a "coilled spring of a wine, full of energy and tension."
If you're a fan of Hunter Valley reds or just high-quality Shiraz in general, then the Thomas Kiss Shiraz is simply a must try.
