"I’m really impressed by the crunchy texture of this clean, crisp, very modern dry white. It’s made unashamedly for drinking young so drink it on warm days now and throughout next spring and summer, either on its own as an aperitif or with simple dishes such as grilled fish or chicken salad."
“Floral, stonefruit and kernels (you do smell them, don't you?) Peach, honeyed edge, quite full flavoured, a little gingery spice that lingers long on the finish. Good acidic punch. Really digging this.”

“I’m calling it now. Vermentino should be the hero white variety of Langhorne Creek. It’s not because of fashion, or the perceived attraction of ‘alternate varieties’, more just the suitability of the variety to the region.
This Bremerton is a good example. Varietal, peppery, and refreshing, it packs in the tropical juiciness of the best Sardinian styles, with a chalky, ripe Nashi pear palate and salty, Disprin edged palate. Punchy, long and refreshing, this is a simple fruity wine but done very well. Two thumbs up."
2014 bâtonnage chardonnay
It's not often that I rave about a Chardonnay but this an exception. It has lovely stone fruit aromas, great flavours and a rich creamy texture from the barrel fermentation making it a superb complex wine that is simply divine. Enjoy!

“Just the ticket for a cold night when a hearty red is all that will do. Recommended.”
2014 China Wine & Spirit Wine Awards
GOLD MEDAL: 2012 Selkirk Shiraz
"One of my favourite wines…lovely opulence and impressive length."
"Deep red/purple with a bright, clean aroma of cabernet cassis, very appealing. It's likewise fresh and clean, bright and varietal on the tongue, with gentle mild tannins, and good balance. A very smart young cabernet. Drink young or cellar."
“Leathery, spicy, earthen and curranty. This a good wine to hook into, straight up, but it has some character too. Glad to see that they’re persisting with Mourvedre as a stand-alone varietal. It’s working for them. The wine is good. It has some heft too.”
2014 tempranillo graciano
“Special, so special. Smells like the real deal, when it comes to Tempranillo and blends. Mixed berries, rose and vanilla perfume, cola, thyme, dried mint and toasty spices. Smooth medium bodied palate with well rounded fleshy tannin, mixed berry and toast and a little beef jerky. Acidity is well threaded through and the finish is strawberry accented, spicy and pretty satisfying.”
2013 bâtonnage shiraz malbec
“Matured in French oak for 14 months. As luscious as it is complex, with a magic carpet of predominantly black fruits, spice and whispers of bitter chocolate and licorice; the texture may well be the result of lees stirring, for it is another feature of a handsomely worked wine."

2013 OLD ADAM SHIRAZ
“Fine shiraz from Langhorne Creek is often overlooked by better known prestigious cabernets, but this wine will challenge that perception, a beautifully integrated nig-fella shiraz at 15 percent alcohol yet beautifully balanced combining best block fruit, 22 months in deftly handled oak that all come together with wafts of gum tree and see, dark earthiness adding great complexity. It’s fully structured, still quite closed, but just emerging with an insight into it’s future. Amazing value in this company."

2012 Walter's CABERNET
“Still has great purple colour after 4 years. Classy berry nose with hints of oak. A big rich tasty mouthful of flavour, with elegant vanillin oak and fine grained tannins on the finish. A very classy and sophisticated Cabernet which is superbly delicious.”
“The colour of is still deep and bright, as are the flavours, texture and structure; small wonder it was classed Best of Vintage; wine-stained cork notwithstanding, it has such a powerhouse of dark fruits and layers of ripe tannins (plus oak) that it should be immune to the ravages of oxidation."
"...A trip to the cellar door or website is recommended, as is membership of the Bremerton Wine Society, entitling members to a discount of 20 per cent."
