One of Bremerton’s premium reds. Specially packaged in a tall, heavy bottle and bottled under cork hidden under a paper cap declaring the vintage. I struggled with the 2013 edition of the wine and felt it lacked some of vibrancy and energy that are usually present in Bremerton’s range.
Bremerton Wines, Walter’s Reserve, Cabernet Sauvignon, Langhorne Creek, 2014
Pleasing to have obvious Cabernet fruit aromas dominate rather than oak derived elements: Blackberry and olive tapenade well supported by bramble, fresh turned earth and melted chocolate before the cedary spice of French oak. The long, succulent palate of restrained black fruits underwritten with fine, lacy tannin. There’s understated power: tight and held back (even though the ABV still sits at 15%) this shows an elegance that will slowly evolve over time. A welcome return to form.
