The First Colonists to arrive in South Australia were brought to Kangaroo Island aboard HMS Buffalo in 1836. Sharing the journey was a veteran of the Royal Navy who had served aboard Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory. Frank Potts was an accomplished sailor and carpenter, he built many of the young colony's structures and trading vessels. Six generations later, the Potts family's precious plantings of Malbec have been a key component in many of the nation's most memorable and invaluable vintages for decades. A varietal that performs magnificently on the silty flood plains of Langhorne Creek, Bleasdale's pure Malbec bottlings are a profound statement about the excellence and eloquence which can be achieved after generations of husbanding one of the world's most instrumental yet abstruse wine..

Parcels of Chardonnay grapes with a slightly larger component of Pinot Noir are hand picked from the most prestigious vineyards within the comprehensive Hardy viticultural portfolio in Tasmania. Following a gentle whole bunch press and fining, individual batches are vinified on light grape solids before the completion of malolactic on primary ferment lees. Once clarified, the base wines are judiciously assembled to style and prepared for secondary fermentation in bottle. Extended maturation on yeast lees builds further complexity and depth of character into the wine. A traditional expedition dosage completes the process, adding the last components of complexity and ensuring precise palate balance. Alcohol 12.4%
Crystal clear with an extremely fine bead and persistent mousse, delicate colour of fresh straw with a bright green/ gold hue. On the nose, the wine has an unmistakably inviting and complex melange of aromas with influences of fresh oyster, sour dough yeast as well as the aromas of exotic spices, vanilla bean and nougat. An elegant, mineral palate structure with flavours evolving in the glass around lychee, truffle, cinnamon and lanolin. Exhibits fantastic persistence of flavour, the natural acidity and subtle quality oak tannins are the backbone of this textural wine. Sealed under the highest quality cork available, sublime upon release, Brut Elite will continue to evolve and develop exceptional complexity.
