2015 Bleasdale Frank Potts Cabernet Blend

2015 Bleasdale Frank Potts Cabernet Blend

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.'

DESCRIPTION
  • The philosophy of the Bleasdale winemaking team is to capture the essence of what makes Langhorne Creek red wines so attractive – vibrancy, harmony and texture. Cabernet Sauvignon has elegance and captivating depth of flavour, Shiraz is a ripe fruit style with refined cool climate spice elements and Malbec is perfumed and finely structured.

    In 1836, at the age of 21, Frank Potts arrived in South Australia on HMS Buffalo. In 1850 he established Bleasdale, the first Vineyard and Winery at Langhorne Creek. And the rest, as they say, is history.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Individual blocks are de-stemmed and crushed (Malbec destemmed only) to open fermenters. Pumped over up to 4 times daily during peak fermentation. Drained & pressed after 9 to 14 days on skins. Settled for 24 hours before racking to oak for MLF. Maturation was in French oak puncheons and hogsheads, 28% of which was new.

    TASTING NOTES

    This wine is layered and complex with red berry and darker fruit aromas, notably blackcurrant, plum and lifted violets. These characters continue onto the palate, with floral and fruit layers supported by fine oak tannin and lively berry fruit persistence. Balanced, finely structured and perfumed, this wine shows considerable length and structure & will benefit from cellaring for 10 to 20 years.

  • REVIEWS

    '64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 13% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot. 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.'

    'Cabernet rarely appears so generous. This pours on the tobacco and bay leaf characters but then backs them with sure, ripe, curranty fruit, the slightest slither of chocolate just helping to polish things off. It’s exceptionally well fruited and presented. It’s old school and new school at once. If you enjoy traditional Aussie reds you will certainly enjoy this.'
