Product Information
Sales Information

This rich, full Shiraz is grown in the Bremerview vineyard, which relies on periodical flooding from the Bremer River for irrigation. A medium-full bodied wine showing intense ripe dark berry fruit aromas, a touch of fruitcake and some cinnamon spice. The palate is dense with blackberry preserve and smoky oak flavours and lovely lingering fruit sweetness. 

Enjoy with any of your favourite meat dishes.

The Vineyard

When Frank Potts established Bleasdale in 1850, he built a system of locks and weirs to capture and use floodwaters from the Bremer River to irrigate his vines. Many of the Langhorne Creek's vineyards, including Bleasdale's Bremerview vineyard on the banks of the Bremer River, still rely on his original flood irrigation system.

While many South Australian family wineries died with their entrepreneurial founders, Bleasdale, established in 1850, still survives proudly today.

Through the challenges of the 1930s and 1940s when Britain's Imperial Preference for Australian wine was removed; the 1950s when Australian tastes swung from fortifieds to table wine; and through the 1980s and 1990s when consumers demanded Chardonnay and Cabernet not Verdelho and Shiraz, the Potts family has changed, innovated and persisted.

Other than Yalumba it is the longest running family owned winery in Australia, a proud heritage of commitment and dedication to an industry and a region.

Critics

James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion: "A very ripe bouquet reminiscent of loganberry confiture is a prominent feature; medium-bodied, warm and quite luscious, with a touch of tar on the finish." 88 points.
