The Bleasdale vineyards are fortuitously planted on the fertile flood plains of Bremer River, a confluence of auspicious terroirs and clime which yield the most superlative wines year after year. Conditions encourage the impart of exceptional regional characters and development of excellent tannins in the grapes. The finest bunches of vintage are de stemmed and crushed into open vinification vats, pumped over several times daily, drained upon completion and pressed after eight to twelve days on skins, into a selection of seasoned and new French oak puncheons and hogsheads for malolactic and a year's maturation.
