2015 Bream Creek Vineyard Riesling, Tasmania

A$26.00

James Halliday - Published on 06 Oct 2016 Has more flesh than many 1yo Tasmanian rieslings possess, but not achieved at the expense of freshness, nor - of course - Tasmanian acidity (8.6g/l!). the lime strays slightly towards tropical, and at this stage the wine seems likely to develop quickly - useful, when so many don't.

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.
