Bremerview Shiraz pays homage to Frank Potts’ system of locks and weirs, constructed in the 1850’s and 60’s along the River Bremer, to capture winter floodwaters and irrigate vines. This long standing and robust system for controlling floodwater occasionally comes into use when rainfall is high and the river flows breach the established floodbank.
An expressive, medium to full bodied wine showing intense lifted dark berry fruits and spice. The palate is vibrant with dense blackberry and fresh plum flavours complemented by liquorice and pepper spice.
“Destemmed, 15% whole berry, open-fermented, 12 days on skins, matured in French oak (15% new) for 12 months. Gold medals Melbourne and National Wine Shows ’16. Bright crimson-purple; a masterful play between luscious Langhorne Creek fruit and a spicy, savoury finish. The result is a medium-bodied shiraz that holds interest from the first sip to the finish and aftertaste of the last sip. It’s a needle stuck in the groove to comment on the dizzying value for money.” – 95 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
