Each year Thommo releases a Semillon from the highly awaded Braemore Vineyard as an aged release. This year he is releasing the 2014 Cellar Reserve Braemore Semillon on Saturday 31 August.
The 2014 vintage was and warm dry (not dissimilar to 2017 & 2018) producing wines with extra generosity. This wine is just starting to emerge with those classic bottle aged Hunter Semillon complexities. The palate has developed an attractive richness, yet maintains an amazing delicacy and freshness with vibrant fruit and a fine, focused line of acidity. In a superb drinking zone right now, it will continue to evolve over the next decade.
This weekend in Cellar Door visitors will be treated to a tasting experience of our full range of Single Vineyard Hunter Valley Semillons. The newly released 2019 range will be on tasting, finishing with a comparison between the 2019 & the 2014 Braemore Semillons. This line up showcases the purity of Hunter Valley Semillon it's site specific variations & aging capacity.
The Cellar Reserve is released to herald in the first day of spring, but we thought we'd channel that sunshine and warmth that comes with Spring & release the wine a day early this year. See you across the weekend or place your orders via our website.
