96 points in the 2019 James Halliday wine guide. Sourced from a single vineyard located at Sweetwater Ridge in the northern Belford end of the Lower Hunter Valley. Since 1844 the soils of Sweetwater Hermitage have been the foundation for some of the oldest known vineyards in the Hunter Valley. Made by superstar Hunter Valley winemaker, Andrew Thomas while he was head winemaker at Tyrrell's, this is a back-vintage released from the winery specially for United Cellars customers! Concentrated, deep red and blue fruited frame, and a lengthy, supple tannin profile that has softened with careful cellaring. The deliciously intense mid palate provides some awesome current drinking appeal.
