Bream Creek Pinot Noir 2013
Vintage 2013 was a dream vintage in many ways – great flowering, relatively dry weather with low disease pressure and a warmer than average summer, which provided the warmth and length in the season to fully mature the grapes. A bold and powerful Pinot Noir, made in the Bream Creek style. There are lovely and intense notes of black and red cherries, plus a hint of wild raspberry, on the nose. The palate is smooth and deep, rich with dark plums, black cherries and blueberry. Finishing with balanced fine tannins, and featuring excellent balance and length, this wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for 7-10 years with confidence. Silver Medal Class 20 2016 Tasmanian Wine Show, Silver Medal Class 128 2015 Cowra Wine Show, 96 points Wine Showcase Magazine (July 2015), “Powerful, complex and long in the mouth, red and black cherries and wild raspberries; exemplary tannin and oak management.” 94 points James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2017, 93 points Nick Stock, 90 points Huon Hooke
The Wine Front – Plum and dark cherry, rose oil, sap, spice and a sort of boot polish reduction. Medium bodied, slight hardness but also powerful and flavoursome, bursting through the mouth with perfume, red and black cherry, some sap and dried herb, and a pretty long finish with firm acidity and a lick of tannin. Bold but good.
James Halliday – Powerful, complex and long in the mouth, red and black cherries and wild raspberries; exemplary tannin and oak management.
