Description

Wellington Road is the original name for the road that connects Langhorne Creek with the River Murray crossing town named for the Duke of Wellington. It is on this road that Bleasdale has sat since it was established in 1850.

Blended from some of the best parcels of Shiraz, Cabernet and Malbec from the 2015 harvest. This wine shows an abundance of black fruits - blackberry, blackcurrant and plum with a well balanced, medium-bodied palate. The tannins and oak contribute to the structure and length of this traditional Langhorne Creek blend.

Professional Reviews

Shiraz and cabernet in almost equal proportions 51:49, and that's exactly what you taste. Bright garnet and purple hued. Blackberry, blackcurrant and spice. The 25% new oak adds support and structure to the medium-bodied frame, but not intruding. Gold medals across many shows attests to the quality of the wine.
