Established in 1850 by Frank Potts, Bleasdale is one of Australia's most historically significant wineries, which in 2015 celebrated an incredible 165 years of continuous winemaking by the direct descendants of the founding Potts family.
One of the stars of the Langhorne Creek wine region, the impressive range of wines are made by Paul Hotker; who was the recent recipient of 'Winemaker Of The Year' in Halliday Wine Companion 2018.
The philosophy of the Bleasdale winemaking team is to capture the essence of what makes Langhorne Creek red wines so attractive - vibrancy, harmony and texture. Cabernet Sauvignon has elegance and captivating depth of flavour, Shiraz is a ripe fruit style with refined cool climate spice elements and Malbec is perfumed and finely structured.
De stemmed to open fermenters, approx 15% whole berry, for 2 - 3 days pre-ferment maceration. Fermentation peak at 28°C with pump overs up to 4 times daily. Drained & pressed after 9 to 12 days on skins. Settled for 24 hours before racking to oak for MLF.
