Bream Creek Cuvée Traditionelle 6pk 2014
Tasmanian Winery of the Year | 2018 Melbourne International Wine Competition
2018 Gourmet Traveller Wine Viticulturalist of the Year
The Bream Creek vineyard was planted in 1974 by Fred Peacock. One of the first commercial vineyards established in the Apple Isle state, it has long been considered one of the very best sites in Eastern Tasmania. Fred's premium cool-climate wines are concentrated and long, thanks to the mature vines and low yields.

Bream Creek Cuvée Traditionelle 2014
If you are looking for a quiet storm of a Tasmanian sparkling, Bream Creek, east of Hobart, will fill that desire.
A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the Cuvée Traditionelle typically spends at least 5 years on lees before disgorging and will continue to age in bottle for several years from its release and the 2014 does not deviate from the quality I have come to expect from them..
A rich and buttery brioche, honeycomb, lemon curd, peach blossom and vanilla yoghurt on the nose, the freshness of youth is evident amongst the autolytic characteristics but on the palate, its youth is truly revealed. Crisp green apples, oyster shells, white nectarines, fresh lemon zest all find their way to the front with those toasty notes taking a back seat. Pure elegance with a clean and lean lingering finish, this is a stylish sparkling wine to either drink now or cellar for up to a decade.
