Bleasdale Vineyards is Langhorne Creek's founding winery and Australia's second oldest family-owned and operated winery, established in 1850 by English migrant Frank Potts, who arrived in South Australia on the Buffalo in 1836.  The vineyards are situated on the flood plains of the Bremer river. Frank Potts left behind him a wonderful legacy that continues today.  His sons and grandsons have operated and built up the winery, and Bleasdale is solely owned and operated by fourth- and fifth-generation members of the Potts family.

Typical intense malbec colour. From 2 estate blocks, 1 specialist grower block. 10% whole-berry fermentation, with cold soak, 7–9 days on skins; matured for 12 months in French puncheons (10% new). Winemaker Paul Hotker has this wine on a string, dancing to his every command. This has the gravitas of a great red wine that just happens to be made from malbec; its mouth-watering intensity of forest blackberries, cloves and black olive drawn out on the finish by ripe tannins. Trophy and top gold Royal Adelaide Wine Show ’21, gold Perth Royal Wine Awards ’21. Drink to: 2035; Price: $35.00; Date Tasted: Nov 2021; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
