Description

This vineyard was planted in 1988 on the opposite side of the river from the winery with cuttings from Kevin ‘Gaffer’ Potts. When Frank Potts established Bleasdale in 1850, he drew the boundary extending it to both sides of the Bremer; giving him unique access to and ability to control the flow of the river, a unique Riparian Right. This comes with a duty also not to disrupt the flow of water to users downstream, so he built a weir to block off and control the river. Those were the days…

This is the most full bodied example of the single vineyard wines, not really suited to light lunches. The wine displays the power and concentration so enjoyed by lovers of full bodied Australian wine. The wine has been racked before bottling without filtration, it is normal some sediment may form after a period of cellaring.
Decanting one hour prior to drinking is recommended.
