Bremerton Old Adam Shiraz 2016


Old Adam sits perched top of the Bremerton tree, representing prime Langhorne Creek Shiraz, and built for the long haul. As such, it feels remiss to attempt to drink in youth, but sample and assess we must. Previous reviews available here.

Rich, deep set, coffeed oak wraps the aromatics up, offering glimpses of the deep fruit and spice that will eventually make themselves known.

Lavish across the palate, an acidic freshness carrying the wine with energy. Tannin feels somewhat subtle for a wine of this substance. Fruit rides in on waves, carrying itself in a flourish across the finish, blue and black in the main. As ever, a wine of substance and style, built for the long haul. 93
