Bremerton 2009 Old Adam Shiraz
Family-owned Langhorne Creek winery Bremerton produces some excellent value-for-money wines but there is a serious uplift in quality in this limited-release red from an outstanding vintage. There's plenty of rich fruit flavours here to please those who like their wines to have some muscularity, but also some elegant structure and impressively integrated oak. The complexity doesn't get in the way of the drinkability, however, and while his flexible, layered and concentrated wine is drinking very well as a new release you'd bet plenty that will look even better after a few years in the cellar. $50. www.bremerton.com.au.
