Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages.

Bleasdale are one of Australia's most enduring family enterprises, their historic limestone cellars are National Trust and National Heritage listed. The ancient wineworks house a massive red gum lever press, which fifth generation Michael Potts employs every year to make a small batch, limited release wine. Behind the Bleasdale cellars is a single block of vine which is called upon at vintage, to release precious parcels of hand picked Shiraz. Grapes are destemmed into open fermenters, pumped over four times daily throughout vinification, drained and pressed for an extended maceration on skins, before racking to a high proportion of new French oak puncheons and hogsheads for a year's maturation.
Deep crimson colour. An intense fruit nose, the accent is on dense blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate notes. Tapenade and black olive flavours, ripe plum and milled tricolour pepper characters, supported by a veneer of splendid French oak and fine, savoury tannins running through the length of palate. A match to the finest gourmandise, suckling pig and pink lamb.
