Langhorne Creek, Australia

Malbec performs very well in Langhorne Creek and has been planted by Bleasdale since 1961. The Second Innings shows vibrant primary fruit flavours of plums, red berries and spices, finishing soft and round with velvety smooth tannins.

Bleasdale's founder, Frank Potts, bequeathed the majority of his business to his sixth son, Frank Potts II. Frank Potts II played an important role in Bleasdale's history, being responsible for building its famed red gum press. The image depicts Frank II takingpart in a family game of cricket on the Bleasdale property.

While many South Australian family wineries died with their entrepreneurial founders, Bleasdale, established in 1850, still survives proudly today.

Through the challenges of the 1930s and 1940s when Britain's Imperial Preference for Australian wine was removed; the 1950s when Australian tastes swung from fortifieds to table wine; and through the 1980s and 1990s when consumers demanded Chardonnay and Cabernet not Verdelho and Shiraz, the Potts family has changed, innovated and persisted.

Other than Yalumba it is the longest running family owned winery in Australia, a proud heritage of commitment and dedication to an industry and a region.
