Expert Reviews

96 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionThis is the best barrel selection of '17, thus viticulture and vinification were identical with one curious exception: this has higher alcohol. It laid waste at the Rutherglen Wine Show '18 with four trophies, gold medals at the Hobart Wine Show and Melbourne Wine Awards. It has greater power than its siblings without losing balance, but is not as elegant, with more red fruits on display.
94 Points - Huon HookeDeep, bold colour; lots of smoky, toasty oak evident. The palate flavour is sweetly rich and ripe, plush and decadent. A big, solid, gutsy wine of real concentration and power. And it has a bright future.

How's it taste?

This is a complex and powerful wine, befitting ts Reserve status. Fragrant aromas of raspberry, cherry and violets flow onto a palate showing intense red cherry and red berry fruit flavours as well as earth and spice hints. With excellent length and balance and tannic structure, this limited release wine can be enjoyed now, yet will also reward careful cellaring.

How was it made?

The 2017 wine grape vintage in Tasmania produced excellent quality, although yields were slightly down from those in 2016. We are 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 1973 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 Julian Alcorso uses traditional methods, and some wild ferments, to make table and sparkling wines crafted from Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines speak of their ‘Tasmanian-ism’ through crisp, delicate Rieslings, tropical, floral Sauvignon Blancs and velvety, spiced berry Pinot Noirs.

I love experimenting with wines and encourage our Wine Collective members to try something different all the time. It’s amazing how the same grape variety from 2 different regions made by 2 different wine makers can taste so different. Some wines can be enjoyed on their own while others are better with food. If we all liked the same thing we’d be pretty boring.
