Description

Bleasdale continues to showcase the ability of Langhorne Creek to produce quality individualistic wines. Grenache and Shiraz were originally grown in Langhorne Creek for fortified winemaking but are proving to be excellent for table wine. Nurtured from small parcels into a vibrant, plush and rewarding wine.
Crimson red wine with cherry and blackberry fruits supported by nutmeg, spice, white pepper and some savoury, earthy characters. A generous, opulent palate complemented by textured chalky tannins.

Professional Reviews

Grenache and shiraz destemmed and co-fermented for 12 days before spending 6 months in puncheons. The short barrel maturation the master stroke in keeping the wine red fruited, fragrant and supple. Chalky fruit tannins adding refreshment and ultimately, drinkability, without sacrificing critical structure. Hard to not keep going back to this wine. Another consistent wine show performer from year to year. Fabulous quality.
