As one of Tasmania's oldest vineyards, Bream Creek has a long established reputation as one of Australia's leading Pinot Noir makers. Made in Bream Creek's traditional bold style, the 2018 Bream Creek Pinot Noir offers a vibrant dark cherry nose and an intense, balanced palate with flavours of dark plums and cherries, savoury spices and subtle French oak.
"93 Points. A sturdy pinot, all damson plum to bing cherry. A nice sashay between richness and a glimpse of darker fruit; alongside the ethereal succulence that makes for the best expressions of this capricious variety. Oak nestled nicely. Crunchy, straightforward and sappy length, with a carapace of tannins that augurs for ageability. $42. Drink by 2025. Screwcap." - Ned Goodwin, winecompanion.com.au.
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.
