Much of Langhorne Creek's fruit traditionally went into multi-regional blends and wasn't acknowledged until the 1990s when a group of growers, most notably Bleasdale, started promoting Langhorne Creek as a pure regional wine. Broadside is matured for a year in a selection French and American oak barrels.
