This wine is showing a hint of honeyed development on the nose, along with red apple and Key Lime pie aromas. The palate is energetic, lemon curd, lime pith and Granny Smith apple supported by great line and length. Still youthful, so drink now or in the next 5 or so
years. An excellent foil for spice driven dishes as well as fresh or cooked Tasmanian seafood.
Bream Creek is one of Tasmania’s oldest vineyards 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. Marion Bay is steeped in history. Bream Creek Vineyard overlooks the place where Abel Tasman first landed in 1642 to collect water and to plant the Dutch flag. Later in 1772, French Navigator Marion du Fresne anchored his ships Mascarin and Castries in what is now known as Marion Bay. Today, the Bream Creek district is a rural area with a small but thriving coastal community, well known for its painters, sculptors, fine furniture makers, jewellers and potters. Bream Creek Vineyard forms an integral part of this passionate rural mosaic.
