Andew Thomas, one of the Hunter Valley's leading exponents of semillon and shiraz, is taking to the road to host a series of Semillon+Seafood waterside lunches showcasing his full range of new-release semillons (with a red to finish).
The lunch series will be launched in Newcastle (Merewether Surfhouse on September 8), travelling to Brisbane (Aria, September 22), Melbourne (The Baths, Middle Brighton, September 17) with two dates in Sydney (Cirrus Dining, September 10 and Ormeggio, September 15).
Thomas believes semillon tastes better when the sun is shining, so to launch the 2011 Cellar Reserve Braemore Semillon and showcase the 2017 single vineyard semillons he's arranged this series of lunches.
The 2011 Cellar Reserve Braemore Semillon is a rare treat. "Each year we release just 500 six packs of this wine,"Thomas says. "It is set aside in cellar-controlled conditions, destined for re-release with six year's of bottle age."
Tickets are inclusive of three-courses plus canapes, paired with the range of semillons.
