Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia
Exclusively Langhorne Creek Shiraz and nothing but the finest of the pick. Bleasdale are one of the new world's great dynasties of wine, still in family hands after six generations of viticulture. Founder Frank Potts was a legendary figure who built much of the new colony's townworks. Fruit is destemmed into traditional open fermenters and pumped over several times daily, drained and pressed after a fortnight and racked to a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads and puncheons for a year's maturation.
Deep, dark garnet. Black bramble notes on the bouquet, currants and pepper notes, regional eucalypts and mint. Flavours of ripe plums and dark berry fruits, liquorice, pepper and fresh spice characters, beautifully supported by subtle oak, a multi dimensional wine brought into balance by a length of smooth round tannins.
