Our Story

Bremerton Wines & Bremerton Vineyards are part of the Willson family owned company, Bremerton Vintners Pty Ltd, in the geographical region of Langhorne Creek in South Australia. Langhorne Creek is unique in that it sits on the rich soil of the Bremer River flood plain and is known as a cool climate region, relatively disease free and a producer of exceptionally high and consistent quality fruit. Fresh cool evening breezes from Lake Alexandrina provide a microclimate of mild to warm summer days and cool evenings, perfect for the long ripening of the grapes producing intense and sought after cool climate flavours.

Sales cover all major states of Australia with exports to the UK, Hong Kong, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Singapore, Brazil, the Netherlands, China, Philippines and Dubai.

Winemaker Rebecca Willson and Marketing Manager, Lucy Willson have focussed the family’s wine range on high quality and individualistic wines. They have given Bremerton a strong foothold in the highly competitive wine market with Rebecca’s first label at age 25 – the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon winning a trophy and rated third best Cabernet in Australia by Winestate magazine.

Since then the Willson Sisters have taken Bremerton to become one of the best-known brands from South Australia’s Langhorne Creek wine region.

For the past 11 years Bremerton Wines has been awarded the James Halliday 5 star rated winery which ranks us in the top 5% of all Australian Wineries.

TASTING NOTES

MALBEC; a variety once popular in Bordeaux France, is now mostly associated with countries such as Argentina and regions such as Cahors in South West France. Langhorne Creek has a long history with Malbec and the climate is exceptionally well suited.

This Special Release Malbec is the result of block selection, the parcels have been kept separate and nurtured for maximum expression of varietal character. This wine shows an intense perfumed aroma of violets and spice with a bramble lift, on the palate the wine is rich and fleshy with fine tannins.

This dazzling, purple-red hued Bremerton Malbec features crimson highlights along the edges. This enticing Malbec varietal offers intense aromas of violets and spices from the perfumed nose, with subtle bramble nuances evident in the backdrop. These vibrant fragrances integrate with fine tannins on the rich and fleshy palate, to culminate in a sharp yet satisfying finish. This exquisite red wine can be stored for 3 to 5 years, but can also be relished fresh and young upon release. Pair it with beef burritos, hot lamb curries and baked potatoes to enjoy an appealing meal.

Pairing

The best accompaniment to a Malbec wine are dishes including roasted red meat, pasta with red sauces and mature cheese with a complex flavour. Malbec wines are also great with typical Argentinian cuisines such as meat empanadas and stews.
