A modern Aussie classic: savoury and sensational, pink-frothed sparkling Shiraz.
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.
Frank Potts, an immigrant from England, founded Bleasdale in 1850, and six generations later his descendants form the second-oldest wine family in Australia (after Yalumba). The name comes from a local Reverend, 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.
James Halliday Wine Companion 2017
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.
Tyson Stelzer Wine Taste Weekly
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. 92 Points.
