The wine shows the varieties with plum and blackcurrant fruits, typical chocolate character from the Shiraz and boysenberry spice from the Malbec. A juicy and persistent flavour and smooth velvety tannins. 

Enjoy with a hearty winter stew or summer BBQ.

The youngest of Frank Potts the second's eleven children, Lloyd Stanley Potts or Sticky as he was known, was a motorcycling enthusiast all his life. In 1932, he entered his first Australian Grand Prix at Philip Island and came second. The front label depicts a young Sticky practising his speedway broad-side turns.

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.

Ian, Curious Wines Naas

Or 'the one with the motorcycle on it' as some regulars call it. It has loads of dark fruit (plums, blackcurrent and blackberry) with very smooth tannins that make it so, so drinkable. Though I have it with everything from posh bangers and mash to the obligatory cheese board, I find it goes very with itself."
 

James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion

"Bright crimson. A medium-bodied palate, with plum, blackberry, blackcurrant and a lick of dark chocolate given texture by silky tannins. Very good value."
