Bleasdale’s highly acclaimed flagship blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (64%), Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, dedicated to founder Frank Potts who established Australia’s second-oldest still family-owned winery in 1850.
This is a mind-bending pleasure ride of dense black fruit infused with cedar, mint, dark chocolate, pencil shavings and violets. Maturation in French oak barriques for 12 months adds extra softness and richness to the palate, with firm tannin structure ensuring weight, concentration and longevity – this will age for 20 years with careful cellaring.
Decanting two hours prior to serving is recommended.
The Wine Advocate
Aromas of creme de cassis, mulberries, blackberry preserves, cigar boxes, Indian spices, pencil lead, earth and pepper. Approachable now, it will reward some cellaring too.
Australian Wine Companion 2018
Langhorne Creek is a very special place, as Wolf Blass realised decades before others. This wine exemplifies the freshness and softness of the bright fruit expression of all the red varieties grown there. This is so seductive it pains me to spit it out, but that I must do.
