Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo. What's most unique about the Clarence House vineyards are the soils and topography, a number of northeast slopes which catch the early sun yet shade the vines from afternoon heat. A natural endowment of rich Jurassic soils which impart wonderful mineral characters and textures into the finished wines... Heirlooms of a hobart homestead»
There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard Vineyard, establishing Brokenwood as one of the most cherished marques in Hunter Valley wine...

Bream Creek Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Marion Bay Tasmania
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.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
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.
