NEW ARRIVALS FROM BLEASDALE (Langhorne Creek, South Australia)

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, John 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.


We have four new lines from Bleasdale: two great-value blends that offer superb ‘skullability’ (an actual wine term heard from an Aussie winemaker before); and two premium wines from what is arguably mainland Australia’s finest region for whites (especially Sauvignon), the Adelaide Hills.

Bleasdale Langhorne Crossing White 2012 Intro Price €10.99 (RRP €12.99)
A crisp, zesty blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Bleasdale specialty Verdelho, this perky young white delivers superb refreshment and fruit salad notes.

Bleasdale Langhorne Crossing Red 2011 Intro Price €10.99 (RRP €12.99)
A silky-smooth blend of Cabernet, Shiraz and Malbec, this well-priced Aussie brings oodles of ripe black fruits, sweet spice and eucalyptus to the table.

Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2013 €14.99
The air-conditioned Adelaide Hills is one of the few places in Australia that excels at growing cool-climate varieties like Sauvignon. Pure, bright style with subtle finesse.

Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2012 €14.99
Handpicked fruit from premium vineyards fermented by wild yeasts in top-grade French oak barrels. Classic stone fruit and spice notes, with a complex, creamy midpalate.
