2018 Powder Monkey Shiraz

In 1824, aged nine, Bleasdale founder Frank Potts joined the British Royal Navy as one of its dutiful powder monkeys, responsible for carrying gunpowder from the magazine below decks to the many cannons during battle. This wine celebrates the adventure of a young Frank Potts.

A single vineyard wine from our very best Shiraz vineyard, located behind the cellars. The block is planted to three clones and pruned to various methods to enhance the layers and complexity of the resultant wine. An agile viticultural strategy to thrive in drought or flood.

Pure crimson, an intense and powerful wine. The accent is on dense blackberry, liquorice and spice with bitter chocolate and savoury tannins running through the length of the palate.
