Bream Creek were one of the first commercialy operated vineyards in Tasmania. Their fastidiously husbanded vines consistently produce low yields of the highest quality grapes. The original consortium established five hectares of vines in 1973 which included some of Tasmania's earliest plantings of Chardonnay. The property enjoys a cool frost free spring, long sunny summer days with sea breezes and an extended autumn ripening period. Surrounded by neighbouring forest and windbreaks, the vineyard is nicely sheltered from strong and cold winds, perfect for producing crisp cool climate wines. Crop yields are kept very modest, the focus being on small berries and small bunches.
 
Bright pale straw in colour. The bouquet boasts white nectarine and peach with some subtle citrus characters. The palate is tightly structured with good texture and an array of spicy tropical fruit combined with freshly baked bread. Judicious use of oak combines to produce elegance with a long, firm, refreshing finish. Enjoy alongside crackling roast pork or seafood, pasta or poultry.
Bream Creek Pinot Noir
Marion Bay
Available by the dozen
Bream Creek is one of Australia's southernmost vineyards, one of the first commercialy operated sites in Tasmania. Crop yields are kept very modest, the focus being on harvests of small berries clustered into small bunches of fruit. Painstaking efforts achieve the essential cool climate Pinot Noir, grown to older vines in the lower latitudes of Tasmania's southeast. Such idyllic growing conditions deliver outstanding quality grapes which are vinified by an artisanal team into an elegant, velvety Pinot Noir with alluring aromatics and a profound, slowly ripened palate.

Bream Creek Vineyard is planted on a northeast ridge above Marion Bay at the edge of the Tasman Sea. This gently sloping site, coastal location and maritime influence, create a highly favourable microclimate. Bream Creek wines are hand crafted to capitalise on the stunning flavours that originate from predominantly old vines. The wines are ripe and ready upon release but are built to age. Pinot Noir in particular is crafted to the most traditional methods, inoculated by wild ferments. These old world techniques retain delicate flavours with multiple dimensions, palate weight and structure. Bream Creek was matured in a combination of carefully selected, seasoned and new French oak barriques.
 
Bright crimson red. Complex spicy, dark berry fruit and floral aromas, mingle with subtle oak, earth and glace cherry. The palate is seamless and well structured with layers of finely textured flavours. Combined with a touch of forest floor, fine tannins build to great length with a nice firm subtle finish. Have this magnificently versatile, food oriented Pinot wine with meats, salmon or game.
Bream Creek Riesling
Marion Bay
Available by the dozen
Bream Creek have been producing fine Riesling wines since the original plantings went into the ground at Marion Bay during the early 1970s. The vines are now forty years of age and produce firmly structured Rieslings of character and finesse. Bream Creek have enjoyed considerable success over the years, largely due to the very long, mild growing season, the strength of the estate's viticultural team and the influence of vine age. Unlike many of its sibling Tasmanian Rieslings, a remarkable wine that offers some distinctly old world European qualities.

Overlooking the breathtaking seascape of Marion Bay and Maria Island, Bream Creek is one of the first commercial vineyards planted in Tasmania and produces some of the finest boutique wines. The area is steeped in the annals of Australia's earliest history. The vineyard overlooks where Abel Tasman first landed in 1642, raised the Dutch flag and went ashore to collect water. Later in 1772 French Navigator Marion du Fresne anchored his ships Mascarin and Castries in what is now known as Marion Bay. Central to the inspired environment, Bream Creek Vineyard is an integral part of the local mosaic of potters and furniture makers, sculptors and artisans.
 
Medium straw in colour. Citrus blossom, grapefruit, some lime and floral notes. Clean and firm palate with refreshing lime, musk and citrus flavours. Long firm structure, soft and well balanced acidity giving the wine vibrancy and freshness. Rieslings are absolutely delightful when young and fresh and continue to develop in bottle.

A long line of Bream Creek's wines have been consistent medal and trophy winners on the Australian wine show circuit. The devoted team maintain quality of their splendid efforts through attention to detail in the vineyard and winery, remaining adaptable to the season and by capitalizing on favourable climatic conditions. For the Bream Creek team, it is critical to pick grapes purely on the basis of flavour, holding their nerve and awaiting the fruit to ripen fully for wines of exceptional quality. You can't enhance flavour in the winery, you have to get it right in the vineyard and in the picking. Fastidious crop management has been the keystone to Bream Creek's achievements in ultra fine Sauvignon Blanc.
 
A pale straw yellow colour. The nose is beautifully defined, it couldn't be anything other than Tasmanian. Aromas of white cherry, limefruits and lemon, ripe melons and citrus blossom. The palate is medium dry with sweet, ripe white peach flavours, cut melon and floral characters. Such a highly engaging wine with generous array of aromas and fruit flavours, immensely pleasant and universally popular, a great choice for dining and entertaining.
Bream Creek Schonburger
Marion Bay
Available by the dozen
The team at Bream Creek are great fans of esoteric European wine styles and have introduced the avant garde Schönburger varietal to the southern hemisphere. I hear you ask, Schönburger? A rare German red grape, more commonly grown in England, Schönburger is a hybrid of Pinot Noir and another curious grape developed by I Birovano, itself a hybrid of Chasselas and Muscat Hamburg. An appealing, rich nose with ripe fig, rose petal and subtle tropical fruit, the palate is full and rich, exhibiting a lovely silkiness with a refreshing, clean finish.

Overlooking the breathtaking seascape of Marion Bay and Maria Island, Bream Creek was one of the first commercial vineyards ever planted in Tasmania. The estate is central to the thriving coastal locality, well known for its community of artisans. The property was acquired by a leading Tasmanian viticulturalist in 1990. One of Fred Peacock's first priorities was to plant the unique Schönburger varietal. Similar to Pinot Gris and Traminer in its pungent qualities and complexity, Schönburger is an early ripening grape which loves the cool, maritime influenced climes. It positively flourishes in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia, producing a distinctive white wine, typically soft and fruit forward.
 
Pale straw in colour. Rose petals and turkish delight, a well perfumed, floral bouquet. An array of enticing flavours, mingled with alluring aromatic characters. Soft, silky and seamless, the palate is well balanced, delicate with good length and a clean finish. A rare variety with the ability to complement a wide range of foods, sublime with Indian cuisine or Thai green curry, Schönburger is most notable for its floral muscat bouquet.

The original consortium in 1973 planted 5 hectare of vines consisting mainly of Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer. In August 1990, the vineyard was purchased by Fred Peacock - one of Tasmania’s leading viticulturalists. Fred’s priority was to increase Pinot Noir plantings and introduce Sauvignon Blanc and Schonburger (the first commercial plantings in the Southern Hemisphere.) The Riesling vines are now over 30 years old, some of the oldest commercial vines in Tasmania. With Fred’s dedication and passion, the vineyard is now a 7.5 hectare showcase of premium Tasmanian varieties.

Bream Creek

Marion Bay is steeped with history. The vineyard overlooks where Abel Tasman first landed in 1642, raised the Dutch flag and went ashore to also collect water. 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 thriving coastal community- well known for its artisans- painters, sculptors, fine furniture makers, jewellers and potters. Central to this inspired environment, Bream Creek Vineyard is an integral part of this mosaic as a unique, quality focused premium wine producer.

Bream Creek Vineyard is planted on a north-east ridge above Marion Bay on the edge of the Tasman Sea. This gently sloping site, coastal location and maritime influence, result in growing conditions that are characterised by long mild seasons to create premium fruit quality. The vineyard enjoys a cool frost free spring, long sunny summer days with sea breezes and an extended autumn ripening period. Surrounded by neighbouring forest and windbreaks, the vineyard is nicely sheltered from strong and 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. The site features a large dam which is used sparingly for trickle irrigation. All vines are vertical-shoot positioned and trained. They are also hand pruned and picked. Crop yields are very modest with both small berries and quite small bunches. This allows low yields of exceptional cool climate fruit with enhanced varietal characters – perfect for winemaking and the production of truly premium cool climate wines.

Bream Creek wines are hand-crafted to capitalise on the stunning flavours that originate from predominantly old vines. The wines (both red and white) are made to age. Aromatic whites are generally whole-bunch pressed with skin contact creating balance and good structure. Chardonnay goes through partial malolactic fermentation and lees-stirring to create texture and elegance.

The red varieties, particularly Pinot Noir are created utilising traditional methods and on some occasions wild ferments. Wines are matured in carefully selected new and aged French oak. These methods retain delicate flavours with multiple dimensions, palate weight and structure. After years of deliberation at Bream Creek the estate released a Reserve Pinot Noir and it was a stand out from day one! Already a multiple trophy and gold medal winner, 2005 produced near perfect conditions for flowering, fruit-set and ripening. The bouquet is exquisite, and palate shows true finesse.

Bream Creek may be the only producer of the Schonburger style of wine in the southern hemisphere. For those who really enjoy their desert wines, this is one that is definitely on the agenda. The best way to describe this wine is luscious! It has alluring floral and honeysuckle blossom characters mingled with tantalising mandarin peel and apricot aromas. The palate is well balanced, rich and flavoursome, but with a clean snappy finish, particularly enjoyable with blue vein cheese or sticky date pudding.

When working away in the vineyard, the spectacular coastal location never ceases to amaze the Bream Creek winemaking team. This beautiful part of the world and the diligence of the viticulture continues to produce some classic cool climate wines. To complement the estate's 35 year old Riesling vines (the oldest commercially planted in Tasmania) more plantings were established. The result of a very strong demand for Bream Creek's spectacular Rieslings and the great suitability of this variety to a vey unique terroir!
