James Halliday, author of the 2021 James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, has written that:

“Until 1990 the Bream Creek fruit was sold to Moorilla Estate, but since then the winery has been independently owned and managed by Fred Peacock, legendary for the care he bestows on the vines under his direction. Freds skills have seen both an increase in production and outstanding wine quality across the range, headed by the Pinot Noir. The list of trophies and gold, silver and bronze medals won is extensive. Freds expertise as a consultant is in constant demand.

We consider our reviews and awards as reflective of the quality, hand made cool climate wines being produced by us (and others) in Tasmania. You can find a selection of the reviews and awards for each of current release wines in the respective tab in our secure online store here.
