Old Adam Shiraz 2016, Bremerton

£33.95 per bottle

About this wine

This limited release of Bremerton’s Old Adam Shiraz is a result of fastidious vineyard, batch and barrel selection. The Old Adam is a combination of parcels of wine from the best blocks of shiraz from Bremerton’s 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 2016 is an excellent example of premium Langhorne Creek shiraz, showing intensity of rich fruit flavours and elegant integrated oak, providing a delicious well structured complex wine.  With every vintage, each parcel of shiraz is assessed and the most outstanding are nurtured and then blended to create the Old Adam.  This maintains the quality, distinction and reputation of this fine wine.

The concentrated, high quality parcels of fruit were fermented in open vats and then matured for 22 months in new and seasoned specifically selected, extra fine grain American and French Oak.  Additional 12 months maturation in bottle allows full integration of oak and fruit tannin.

Perpetually one of Australia’s most awarded Shiraz, it is a testament to winemaker Becs Willson, and her relentless pursuit of perfection. Outstanding.

CELLARING: Reward with cellaring up to 6+ years

SERVE: This wine will match well with hearty red meat dishes.

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
