Premium Langhorne Creek Shiraz grapes have been used to produce this richly flavoured non-vintage sparkling Shiraz. Bleasdale's secret liqueuring recipe also helps the wine show off its best assets - dark berry fruit aromas, sweet plum flavours, silky tannins and a rich velvety smooth palate.

Enjoy with Christmas pudding, duck dishes, roast meats or simply by itself. Suggested serving temperature 8-10 degrees C.

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.

Tyson Stelzer

Australia’s most consistently impressive sparkling Shiraz. Plum and red cherry freshness is derived from younger fruit in the blend, while mature Shiraz lends rich savoury spice and dark chocolate flavours. Just how a wine of such quality can be produced every year for such a measly price is, frankly, totally beyond me.

James Halliday

Bright colour; spiced damsel plum bouquet, with a rich fruitcake palate; quite sweet, but the finish is fresh and the tannin drying; well-balanced. Diam
