Bremerton Old Adam Shiraz
One of Bremerton’s premium wines, this is something they have been making for a very long time and is made from the barrels that stand out with the most concentration, creating quite a dense core. Old Adam is aged for 24 months in barrels containing a percentage of new oak, however, it’s not to make the wine big and oaky like you may think – instead it has a very bright fruit behind it.
With an additional 12 months of ageing after this phase, the shiraz sits for a good three years before its release. The dark plum core and mulberry characters create quite a seamless palate. The taste is relatively full bodied, yet approachable: perfect for someone who wants to sit down and just enjoy some good shiraz. We do recommend cellaring this particular wine, but if you absolutely cannot wait to get it on your taste buds, you can decant it. Get some air into it to open up. It’ll look divine in those big wine glasses you keep for this exact occasion. It’s very intense, and the beautiful silky mouthful is really amazing.
