Bream Creek are an out and out Tassie success story. Since current owner/vigneron Fred Peacock bought the vineyard in 1990, they’ve won more than 20 trophies and more than 470 show medals. But the Bream Creek story is so much more than that, it is the story of Fred Peacock himself. Tasmania’s first Viticultural Officer and who also worked alongside such pioneering viticultural names as Graham Wiltshire of Heemskerk, Andrew (and David) Pirie of Pipers Brook and the Alcorso family at Moorilla in establishing the footholds for the modern Tasmanian wine industry.
This wine has picked up some bling in its short existence, with Gold Medals at the 2017 Australian Cool Climate Wine Show; the 2018 International Cool Climate Wine Show and the 2018 Melbourne International Wine Competition.
Lemon zest, grapefruit and lime citrus with white peach fuzz richness supported by attractive oak providing subtly spiced, nutty sweet kisses. Firm, textural palate bordering on savoury with underlying crisp bright acidity and honey echoes. Classy.
