Bremerton Old Adam Shiraz Add/Read Comments
Snooth Wine Search:
The James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2008, released at the end of last month, rated this wine rather highly, 97 points to be precise, placing it on the same quality rung as Penfolds Grange 2002 and Hill of Grace 2002.
Grange, as I am sure you are aware retails for around £150.00 a bottle. Hill of Grace even more at £175.00. Bremerton Old Adam Shiraz is just £19.95.
"Amazingly vivid purple-red; licorice, blackberry, plum, spice and pepper are all present in roughly equal proportions on both bouquet and palate, and there are sufficient tannins to provide all the structure needed; oak is the hidden note. Cork 15% alc. Drink to 2024."
I was chatting to a local wine merchant the other day who has received dozens of orders and calls regarding this wine - all from Australia. Sadly he doesn't ship down-under. Even if he did his allocation is so small that even the pre-orders he has for his UK-based customers wont be fulfilled. He wasn't even that keen in letting me have a bottle!
