Malbec Langhorne Creek South Australia
Bleasdale have been working with Malbec for generations, refining the art of extracting optimal expression from the amiable, thin skinned grape, a key component to the estate's flagship Frank Potts red blend. Malbec is rarely seen as a pure varietal wine, but at Langhorne Creek it performs well enough to earn its stripes all on its own. Showing vibrant primary fruit flavours of plum, red berries and spice in its youth, it finishes soft and round on a length of velvety smooth tannins.

Malbec is a grape with a past, found in some of France's most stately Bordeaux Crus where it contributes lifted perfumes to the nose and softness to the palate. In Langhorne Creek it performs extremely well on its own as a pure varietal wine, Bleasdale have been bottling Malbec since 1961. Fruit is harvested and treated to a term of cold soak, a portion is included as uncrushed whole berries. Parcels are vinified in a collection of old two to twenty two tonnes fermenters over the course of a fortnight. Upon completion, components are racked into a mix of seasoned and new French oak hogsheads and puncheons for malolactic and a year's maturation.
Bright red colour. A lovely bouquet of dark fruits swathed in chocolate, roasted meats with mint, briar and violet, followed by a fine essence of lifted cassis and red berries. It leads to a medium bodied palate exhibiting pure varietal flavours, a quenching acidity, savouryness and light gamey, meat character. Velvety smooth tannins and a soft finish.
