This wine shows flavours of ripe plums and other dark berries, layered with liquorice, pepper and fresh spices.
95 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"It starts with a waft of meaty reduction before florals, licorice and Middle Eastern spices take over. There's more: black plums, charry oak and a savoury overlay with plush tannins and a certain vivacity. Appeals now, but will further reward those with patience."
95 Point Rated - Sam Kim Wine Orbit
"Offering fabulous fruit flavours with spicy complexity, the wine shows mulberry, dark plum, violet, clove and cedar characters on the nose, followed by a wonderfully rounded palate that's fleshy and lingering. It's gorgeously flavoursome and satisfying with loads of tasty flavours, finishing long and velvety. At its best: 2022 to 2033."
92 Point Rated - Gary Walsh The Wine Front
"For whatever reason, I think of mobile power sources, and maybe Doctor Who. Ripe, blackberry, a bit of toasty oak and dried beef. Robust, fleshy, plenty of tannin, beef and blackberry, and black bean, good finish. Sticky ribs of tannin. Plenty of flavour."

The majestic red gums that surround Bleasdale are at the core of our remarkable history. When Frank Potts settled the land in the 1850s, he used the timber from these big, beautiful trees to build our winery. Our vineyards benefit from the rich, clay soils that also support these gums, giving generosity and longevity to our wines. The growth rings reflect the multitude of stories from past seasons and generations of family and growers alike.
Shiraz was the first red grape variety planted in Langhorne Creek at Bleasdale in 1858. This wine shows flavours of ripe plums and other dark berries, layered with liquorice, pepper and fresh spices. Drinking well now, but with the potential to be a long term cellaring prospect if desired. Lightly fined and racked before bottling without filtration, it is normal for some sediment to form. Decanting one hour before drinking is recommended.
Langhorne Creek, South Australia
