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..

There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard Vineyard, establishing Brokenwood as one of the most cherished marques in Hunter Valley wine...

An assemblage of fruit grown to the Lanark Lane and Opawa, Kaituna and Awatere Estate Vineyards, vinified alongside parcels from local quality growers. Each site contributes unique expressions, from topical capsicum and nettle in the early blocks, to luscious lychee and passionfruit from the later harvests. Grapes are harvested at night or throughout the cool of morning, beginning with the early ripening blocks and finishing in Awatere Valley. Fruit is gently crushed, pressed and fermented to a variety of aromatic yeasts, the aim being to preserve flavours and aromas developed in the vineyard. Upon completion, the wine was held on lees for several months, enhancing creaminess and infusing flavours.
Pale straw in colour. Fragrant with characters of lime zest and passionfruit, fresh coriander and wet stones. A mouthwatering yet smoothly integrated palate reveals notes of grapefruit, tahitian lime and a strong textural component. A fine mid palate concentration and zingy finish, delicious upon release alongside schnapper and avocado salsa.
