"92 Points. Hand picked; 25% whole bunches; partial wild fermentation; matured 9.5 months in 25% new French oak. A season of quality over quantity furnishes a characterful East Coast pinot noir. Leads with cashew nut from French oak, well supporting the black cherry, black plum and beetroot of this concentrated season. It will appreciate a little more bottle age for fruit and oak to mesh, and it will confidently go the distance, energised by fine-grained tannins and nicely integrated acidity. $45. 13.5% alc.

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.
