Bleasdale Vineyards have been proudly owned by the Potts family for five generations. Founder Frank Potts was born in Hounslow, and joined the Royal Navy at the tender age of 9! He started his career as a powder monkey and travelled the world several times, before settling in South Australia in 1836. Originally a carpenter, in 1850, on seeing a great plot of land near the town of Langhorne Creek, he and his new wife bought it and began farming. Theirs became the first winery of this region. In 2007, Paul Hotker became their winemaker (Winemaker of the Year in 2018) and since then they’ve won 60 Trophies. Named after the floodgates Frank devised in 1850 to control the water flow, this is dense, ripe yet elegant Shiraz, aged a year in barrel.

Tasting notes:
The aroma is of ripe plums, black olive with spice and mint. A hint of blackberry jam exists also. The palate shows ripe plums and blackcurrants with lovely grainy, almost chewy, tannis which add to a very long finish. An extremely refined style with great balance and a lingering acidity.
