Bleasdale 'LX' White 2016

Langhorne Creek, Australia

Buy Now:


Pale straw-lemon hue with a perky, extroverted nose of lime cordial and pineapple. The frisky palate has bright flavours of cool fruit salad with touches of honeysuckle. A vivacious and easy to appreciate style of white. 

Drink on its own for immediate refreshment or pair with lemon sole goujons. 

Frank Potts, an immigrant from England, founded Bleasdale back in 1858, and six generations later his descendants form the second-oldest wine family in Australia, after Yalumba. The Bleasdale name comes from a local Reverend, Ignatius Bleasdale, who advocated a “sober, wine-drinking community that excludes ardent spirits.” An anti-temperance priest suited Frank's ironic sense of humour, so he immortalised him in his winery.

Robert Parker is a Bleasdale fan, remarking that it “produces some of the most reliable as well as fairly-priced wines around". 

Langhorne Creek, a region in South Australia, sits on an flood plain that is well supplied with irrigation water, a huge advantage in this arid continent. Cooling breezes blow off the Southern Ocean and Lake Alexandria, producing a temperate, long growing season. Though a red wine area (Cabernet and Shiraz making up 70% of plantings), the Creek has also made a name for its white Verdelho.
