Overview

The winemaking team headed by family winemaker Rebecca Willson has taken the quality of our wines to new standards.

Rebecca seeks the best possible fruit from our own and other specialised Langhorne Creek vineyards to craft traditional, full bodied, full flavoured, mouth filling Langhorne Creek wines that show a consistency of style whilst encouraging the true varietal grape characteristics to be expressed.

The winery has invested heavily in a premium French & Amercian oak program using 220 litre barriques to ensure subtle and complementary oak influences. The winery utilises tradtional open top fermenters, made from stainless steel and a purpose built barrel cellar for maturation. New laboratory and tasting facilities are part of the winery.

Winery Tasting Notes

The name “Selkirk” is in recognition of our Grandfather’s heritage. This Scottish border town was the ancestral home of the Willson family.

The 2016 Selkirk Shiraz offers distinctive varietal characters of lifted white pepper aroma, dark berry fruit, plum and savoury spice. It displays a well-balanced palate structure, soft supple tannins and well integrated oak.

After fermenting in small open top fermenters the wine spent up to 18 months in selected new and older fine grain American & French oak. Parcels were chosen to give the final blend the best balance between varietal fruit character, complexity and structure.

Cellaring

Although drinking well now, this wine will reward with up to 4+ years.

Serve

Matches well with Mediterranean foods, red meat and cheeses.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Langhorne Creek is unique in that it sits on the rich soil of the Bremer River flood plain. Fresh cool evening breezes from Lake Alexandrina provide a micro climate 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.

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.
