Thomas Wines Braemore Semillon 2014

The vintage conditions for this wine were perfect but it is the change in how the grapes are harvested which is most impressive. Hand harvested at night with head lights. What the.......? This practise retains more natural acidity and works brilliant here.

Don't tell anyone but this is mind blowing brilliant. At the moment the wine is coiled up in it self but the length is monumental and the flavours spread out wide. Forget about what the wine tastes like now as it will require 10 in the cellar to show a little of its true colours. What the cool liquid bliss provides from the get go is intensity then it just keeps on pulling long and slowly up my tongue. While this next part is an exaggeration it makes a point. I feel like I could watch the whole of the Lord of the Rings trilogy (extended version) on only a few sips off this beautiful beauty and it would still be there after the movie finished. Just Bliss nothing more or less.
