  • THE BRIEF
  • Malbec, a variety once popular in Bordeaux France, is now mostly associated with countries such as Argentina and regions such as Cahors in South West France. Langhorne Creek has a long history with Malbec and the climate is exceptionally well suited. This Special Release Malbec is the result of block selection, the parcels have been kept separate and nurtured for maximum expression of varietal character.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • This Malbec was fermented as several separate parcels then matured for 16 months in a mixture of new and old Hungarian and French oak barrels with a proportion aged on yeast lees to give the wine added structure and mid palate texture and fullness.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    This wine shows an intense perfumed aroma of violets and spice with a bramble lift, on the palate the wine is rich and fleshy with fine tannins.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Bremerton Wines & Bremerton Vineyards are part of the Willson family owned company, Bremerton Vintners Pty Ltd, in the geographical region of Langhorne Creek in South Australia. Langhorne Creek is unique in that it sits on the rich soil of the Bremer River flood plain and is known as a cool climate region, relatively disease free and a producer of exceptionally high and consistent quality fruit. Fresh cool evening breezes from Lake Alexandrina provide a microclimate of mild to warm summer days and cool evenings, perfect for the long ripening of the grapes producing intense and sought after cool climate flavours. The area was first settled in the 1850's when Frank Potts, an English shipwright, took up a track of land and planted grapes. The district grew to 450 hectares of vineyard until 1990 when expansion began, taking it to approx. 6000ha “ the second largest grape growing region in South Australia. Today the range can vary up to 18 wines, a third of which are exclusive to the Cellar Door and Bremerton Wine Society. Now with 120 ha of high quality vineyards and a modern winery, our wine production has increased from 680 dozen in 1993 to 23,000 dozen in 2005 and now fluctuates between 34-40,000 dozen. Sales cover all major states of Australia with exports to the UK, Hong Kong, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Singapore, Brazil, the Netherlands, China, Philippines and Dubai.

    NED GOODWIN - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    Rebecca Willson has crafted a precise, joyous range across Bremerton's 'Special Release' tier. This is no exception, with a riot of black fruit allusions painted across a beam of toasty oak, a rudder for the cascading flavours. Gritty coffee grind tannins, purple florals and a wee tad of volatility, all serve to lift and refresh. Full of flavour and highly drinkable.'

    GARY WALSH - THE WINE FRONT


    Plum, chocolate, spice and nougat oak, perhaps some coconut, but in a good way. Medium to full-bodied, plenty of dark flavour, the spice and nougat again, fleshy tannin, and a good slightly saline finish. Delivers the goods.'

    TONI PATERSON MW - THE REAL REVIEW


    Bright and snappy with aromatic raspberries and spice. The palate is brimming with boysenberry and mulberry flavours, and a touch of earth adds interest and depth. Well-made, delicious and extremely well priced. Get in quick before it sells out.'
