Bremerton Old Adam Shiraz 2014 (Langhorne Creek)
This release is true to style though it had me scratching my head – for a second. The oak feels a bit raw, the finish a little shy of resounding. It presents tar, licorice, malt and toast flavours by the spadeful; choc-mint notes are in there too. You certainly get plenty of substance. And as it breathes, the finish fleshes out a touch. It’s pretty rugged stuff though; it’s a muscle-on-muscle style."

The Bremerton Old Adam is a combination of parcels of wine from the best blocks of shiraz from our vineyards. These vineyards are influenced by the temperate micro climate of warm days, cool evenings and dry conditions which prevail in Langhorne Creek during the ripening season.
The 2014 season is an excellent example of premium Langhorne Creek Shiraz, showing intensity of rich fruit flavours and elegant intergrated oak, providing a delicious well structured complex wine. Every vintage, each parcel of shiraz is assessed and the most outstanding are nurtured to complete 22 months maturation before being blended to create the Old Adam. This maintains the quality, distinction and reputation of this fine wine.
Reward with cellaring up to 6+ years. This wine will match well with hearty red meat dishes. Winery Notes
