Riesling Marion Bay Tasmania
Bream Creek have been producing fine Riesling wines since the original plantings went into the ground at Marion Bay during the early 1970s. The vines are now forty years of age and produce firmly structured Rieslings of character and finesse. Bream Creek have enjoyed considerable success over the years, largely due to the very long, mild growing season, the strength of the estate's viticultural team and the influence of vine age. Unlike many of its sibling Tasmanian Rieslings, a remarkable wine that offers some distinctly old world European qualities.
Overlooking the breathtaking seascape of Marion Bay and Maria Island, Bream Creek is one of the first commercial vineyards planted in Tasmania and produces some of the finest boutique wines. The area is steeped in the annals of Australia's earliest history. The vineyard overlooks where Abel Tasman first landed in 1642, raised the Dutch flag and went ashore to collect water. Later in 1772 French Navigator Marion du Fresne anchored his ships Mascarin and Castries in what is now known as Marion Bay. Central to the inspired environment, Bream Creek Vineyard is an integral part of the local mosaic of potters and furniture makers, sculptors and artisans.
