Bream Creek Schonburger CONFIRM VINTAGE

Schonburger Marion Bay Tasmania
The team at Bream Creek are great fans of esoteric European wine styles and have introduced the avant garde Schönburger varietal to the southern hemisphere. I hear you ask, Schönburger? A rare German red grape, more commonly grown in England, Schönburger is a hybrid of Pinot Noir and another curious grape developed by I Birovano, itself a hybrid of Chasselas and Muscat Hamburg. An appealing, rich nose with ripe fig, rose petal and subtle tropical fruit, the palate is full and rich, exhibiting a lovely silkiness with a refreshing, clean finish.
Available by the dozen

Overlooking the breathtaking seascape of Marion Bay and Maria Island, Bream Creek was one of the first commercial vineyards ever planted in Tasmania. The estate is central to the thriving coastal locality, well known for its community of artisans. The property was acquired by a leading Tasmanian viticulturalist in 1990. One of Fred Peacock's first priorities was to plant the unique Schönburger varietal. Similar to Pinot Gris and Traminer in its pungent qualities and complexity, Schönburger is an early ripening grape which loves the cool, maritime influenced climes. It positively flourishes in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia, producing a distinctive white wine, typically soft and fruit forward.
Pale straw in colour. Rose petals and turkish delight, a well perfumed, floral bouquet. An array of enticing flavours, mingled with alluring aromatic characters. Soft, silky and seamless, the palate is well balanced, delicate with good length and a clean finish. A rare variety with the ability to complement a wide range of foods, sublime with Indian cuisine or Thai green curry, Schönburger is most notable for its floral muscat bouquet.
