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.
