Bream Creek Pinot Noir 2015

Bream Creek, Tasmania   |    750ml   |    14%

As one of Tasmania's oldest vineyards, Bream Creek has a long established reputation as one of Australia's leading Pinot Noir makers. The 2015 Bream Creek Pinot Noir is already attracting plenty of interest from. Made in Bream Creek's traditional bold style, this cool-climate Tasmanian Pinot Noir has a spicy dark cherry nose and an intense, balanced palate with flavours of dark plums and cherries, savoury spices and subtle French oak. As always, stocks of this wine are limited and not likely to last long. 

"95 Points. Tasted after a string of thin, weedy mainland pinots, underlining the richness and depth of the varietal character of this wine. Black cherry, satsuma plum, and spicy/ foresty notes, partly from the whole bunches, are built on a foundation of ripe and persistent tannins. A long and prosperous future awaits. Screwcap. 13.7% alc. To 2025" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2019.

Planted in 1974 on Tasmania’s east coast, Bream Creek is one of the state’s oldest vineyards. The original 5 hectares consisted mainly of Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller plantings of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer.

The vineyard was purchased by Fred Peacock in August 1990, who increased Pinot Noir plantings and introduced Sauvignon Blanc and Schonburger (the first commercial plantings in the Southern Hemisphere of this rare German varietal). With his dedication and passion, this pristine vineyard is now a 7.5 hectare showcase of grape varieties ideally suited to the cool maritime climate of East coast Tasmania.

Bream Creek Vineyard is planted on a north-east ridge overlooking Marion Bay and the Tasman Sea on Tasmania’s east coast. This combination of a gently sloping site, coastal location and maritime influence provides optimal ripening conditions for premium quality grapes. The long, mild seasons feature cool frost free springs, long sunny summer days with gentle sea breezes to moderate the summer heat and an extended autumn ripening period to enhance flavour development. The surrounding topography and forest offer a natural windbreak from the strong, cold winds.

Soils are deep and range from brown to black clay loams with a little small stone on the higher ground. Particular attention has been made to match varieties to the different range of soil types within the vineyard.

Made in our traditional fuller bodied style, this cool climate Pinot Noir has a spicy dark cherry nose and an intense dark fruit palate, supported by fine grained tannins. This wine may be enjoyed now or confidentially cellared.

While yields for vintage 2015 were significantly down across all southern Australian states, including Tasmania, the fruit from that vintage was of excellent quality, with perfect balance between flavour and physiological ripeness.
