Since 1851, the
Brysons have been involved in agriculture for five generations, and are committed to producing exceptional hancrafted wine from fruit grown on their low yielding Morambro Creek vineyard
The pursuit of great wine begins in the meticulous management of the vineyard. Planted on own rootstock in the Padthaway Valley, sited to rich Terra Rosa soils, the vines of this exclusive estate vineyard benefit from excellent sun exposure, yielding grapes of heightened flavour profiles and fine tannins. Morambro Creek Shiraz is an assemblage of select barrels of wines which best demonstrate the intensity of estate grown fruit and integrated oak.
 Morambro Creek

The plains of Padthaway produce wines of consistent quality and style. Although famously known as ‚ÄėChardonnay country‚Äô, the region produces excellent examples of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from old vine material. The Morambro Creek Vineyard consistently produces excellent fruit quality from low yielding vines, destined to be handcrafted into some of the Padthaway regions best wines.

The gently undulating country of Padthaway is neighbour to the famous Coonawarra. It has climatic similarities and a good slice of terra rossa, the famed soil of the Limestone Coast. The success of Coonawarra led viticulturalists to seek out similar ground. Back in 1944 the CSIRO had recommended the region for horticulture due to its rich soil and underground water supply. The climate is coined ‚ÄúMaritime‚ÄĚ with coastal influences. The vineyards here produce fruit for red and white table wine and sparkling wine.

Two plots of 210 acres each on rich Mediterranean climated Terra Rosa soil make up the Morambro estate. The warm summer days are moderated each evening by coastal winds that cool the vines and result in a longer ripening period. This extended period allows for the grape tannins and seed to fully ripen prior to being harvested, thus creating wines that are rich and supple on the palate. Low crop yields and small grape bunches of intense flavour are the priority, and whilst the latest technology is employed to capture vine balance and reduced vigour, fruit is only harvested when full flavour development is achieved.

Wines by people, for people who value quality, style and efforts of a family-owned business. The family estate grew for a half century under the stewardship of Clive Bryson, who has now handed the day-to-day operations over to the next generation, his three sons, Andrew, David and Paul. David oversees every aspect of the business, from winemaking, packaging, stock control, to national and international distribution, sales and marketing. David’s knowledge and skills come from a successful 21 year career in Banking & Finance.

Andrew, is the resident viticultralist, he grew up on the family property at Padthaway and was instrumental in setting up the 210 acre Morambro Creek Vineyard in 1994 with the help of other family members. Andrew is the Senior Viticulturalist and has completed a diploma in Agriculture at Roseworthy College, a certificate in viticulture and contributes to a number of industry organizations.

Running With Bulls
are leading the rush of Mediterranean varietals which can make exciting wine in South Australia’s soil and climate
In 1999, after several study visits to Spain by Yalumba luminaries Robert Hill-Smith and Louisa Rose, Tempranillo was grafted onto old Barossa rootstock. Known to thrive in a range of conditions around the world, Tempranillo has an affinity with the Barossa region, where an ideal climate helps to showcase the stylish fruit flavours of this emerging variety. The experimental fruit of Hill-Smith and Rose whet their appetites and led to further plantings.
 Running With Bulls

Encouraged by the success of their BarossaTempranillo, Hill-Smith planted Tempranillo in their Wrattonbully vineyards three years later. The vineyard site was chosen for its soil types, principally shallow red soils over limestone, undulating aspects and reliable climate. Vermentino’s willingness to thrive in the hot, dry conditions of the Riverland and its terrific approachability make it a welcome addition to the group.

All Running With Bulls grapes are grown with an emphasis on vineyard sustainability, in the warm and dry conditions little intervention is needed. This achieves a healthy and diverse population of natural microflora that piggybacks on the grapes into the winery and begins the natural fermentation. The results are an Australian interpretation of the native styles of Spain and Italy, expressing individual regional characters.

Overlooking the breathtaking
seascape of Marion Bay and Maria Island, Bream Creek is one of the first commercial vineyards planted in Tasmania
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 ‚Äď 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.

Phillip Moraghan was
so captivated by the wines of France and Switzerland, so enthralled by Burgundy and its Pinot Noir, that he was inspired to establish Curly Flat Vineyard
Fortunately for Moraghan, his partner Jeni shared the vision that has brought together the dedicated team to nuture Curly Flat from a romantic ideal to awesome reality. Pursuit of the dream and a cool climate suited to Pinot Noir, brought Phillip and Jeni to Lancefield in the Macedon Ranges near Melbourne. The high altitude region is ideally suited to wine growing, with well drained volcanic soils and moderate rainfall. Curly Flat is located on a slope that catches the very last rays of sunshine in the magical moments before dusk. This prolonged exposure to the Autumn sun provides a vital ingredient for the very special fruit that is produced at Curly Flat. To build expertise Jeni and Phillip volunteered their labour in other vineyards and wineries - but it was Macedon Ranges pioneer, Laurie Williams (Flynn & Williams label), who nurtured their understanding and passion for growing wine.
 Curly Flat

Phillip began studying viticulture and travelling overseas to gain experience in wine growing and making, he has done several vintages in the USA, including Ponzi Vineyards in Willamette Valley Oregon and Russell Hearn's Premium Wine Group on Long Island NY. The first vines were planted at Curly Flat in 1991 and progressively added to, principally Pinot Noir with some Chardonnay and a little Pinot Gris. A new winery was constructed and the original homestead, built in 1890s, has been extensively renovated to host wine tastings and other wine related events. Prior to the 2002 vintage the wines were made at a neighbouring winery under contract, with equipment and labour input from the Curly Flat Team. In 2002 Phillip took over the winemaking role, under the guidance of one of Australia's leading winemakers who is a renowned Pinot Noir specialist.

The central focus of the entire Curly Flat operation is the vineyard. Philosophy is based on the belief that good and great wine is primarily a product of the vineyard, the site, the soil and how the viticulturalist manages all components of the vineyard. Annual and long term management practices and all decisions on variety, clones, rootstocks, trellis systems combine to produce the finest of wine grapes.

The choice of trellis systems sets Curly Flat apart from most vineyards. Divided trellis systems, particularly the Lyre, are more costly to construct and manage, thus rarely used. Only manual harvest is possible thereby greatly reducing its attraction to larger more commercial wine concerns. The vine canopy has two curtains of foliage, allowing sunshine inside the trellis walls to maximise exposure to sunlight, facilitating better ripening, improved wine colour, increased intensity of flavour and reduced plant disease risks.

In choice of vines, Curly Flat follows the European approach of selected multiple clones to gain increased complexity. To date Curly Flat has five clones of Pinot Noir and four of Chardonnay. Curly Flat was selected by the Victorian & Murray Valley Vine Improvement Association to be one of only two Victorian mothervine custodians of the most recently introduced Burgundy Pinot Noir clones, 114 and 115.

As in viticulture, education, training and experience are core to having the necessary skills to manage the growing and making of fine wines. Curly Flat vineyard is tended by a dedicated team of full time vineyard staff. Several are studying, or have completed, apprenticeships in Viticulture. The foundation of winery culture is the belief that it is the grapes from the vineyard that are the primary determinant of final wine quality. In essence, good wine comes from good fruit - the better the fruit, the more the winemaker becomes a custodian of nature's handiwork. Thus the winery culture at Curly Flat is one of guidance of the natural ingredients from the vine to wine, with minimal intervention. Nothing integrates the constituent parts of wine as well as Mother Nature. None of the fruit is actually crushed, Pinot Noir is a combination of whole bunch and de-stemmed fruit, while the Chardonnay is all whole bunch pressed. Both practices follow the traditional minimalist approach to these two classic varieties.
