Bremerton

Winemaking experimentation and a passion for Malbec have led to the development and release of this wine; a selection of premium fruit sourced from Bremerton's vinyards.

The nose shows lifted violet and spice, complemented by a palate showing purity of varietal fruit. This red fruit and white spice is balanced by the structural complexity of fine French oak and a textural finish.
