2017 Bream Creek Pinot Noir
From one of Tasmania's oldest vineyards comes one of its brightest stars - a perfumed Pinot Noir of red fruit and beauty.
Actually, Bream Creek has been delivering Pinot of this calibre for years, with Fred Peacock pouring in his heart and soul for decades. In 2017 everything aligned and a beautiful wine was born.
Opens with great colour; mouthfilling waves of black cherry and satsuma plum follow precisely in the tracks of the bouquet. It has exceptional finesse, line, length and balance. Trophies: Best Tasmanian Red Wine and Best Tasmanian Wine Hobart Wine Show '18, plus significant gold medals in other shows.'
How's it taste?
This premium cool climate Pinot Noir has a generous cherry and spice nose and a powerful palate of dark and red cherries, spice and hints of dark earth and minerals, supported by excellent tannins. Enjoyable now, this wine may also be confidently cellared.
How was it made?
The 2017 wine grape vintage in Tasmania produced excellent quality, although yields were slightly down from those in 2016. Bream Creek is very pleased with the balanced acidity and very good flavour and aroma profiles across all wine styles.
Who made it?
Bream Creek is situated on the stunning South Eastern coastline of Tasmania overlooking Marion Bay and Maria Island. It was established in 1974 by a wine consortium and named after the district where it is located. In 1990, viticulturist extraordinaire and legend, Fred Peacock, purchased the property and set about extending the plantings, especially Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, from 5 hectares to 7.5 hectares. Today, this family-owned property focuses on producing small parcels of fruit to create archetypal cool-climate wines. Winemaker Glenn James uses traditional methods, and some wild ferments, to make table and sparkling wines crafted from Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and the extremely rare German Schönburger. The wines speak of their ‘Tasmanian-ism’ through crisp, delicate Rieslings, tropical, floral Sauvignon Blancs and velvety, spiced berry Pinot Noirs.
