Bleasdale Broad Side Shiraz Cabernet 2014
Langhorne Creek
Available by the dozen
The traditional Australian claret style of Shiraz and Cabernet with a touch of Malbec. Bleasdale have been at it for generations, the masters at producing honest, reliable red wine. There's an urban myth among Bleasdale's community of local growers, that you have to have double letters in your name before you can be a winemaker at Langhorne Creek. Estate patriarch Lloyd Stanley Sticky Potts may have established the tradition. Potts was a motorcycling enthusiast all his life, the label depicts him practicing a broadside turn.

Bleasdale was Langhorne Creek's first winery and remains today Australia's second oldest, family owned operation. The vineyards are situated on the fertile plains of Bremer River, which floods annually nourishing the soils. Historic cellars, constructed from eucalypt and limestone house a massive redgum lever press which fifth generation winemaker, Michael Potts still uses to crush grapes. Much of Langhorne Creek's fruit traditionally went into multi-regional blends and wasn't acknowledged until the 1990s when a group of growers, most notably Bleasdale, started promoting Langhorne Creek as a pure regional wine. Broadside is matured for a year in a selection French and American oak barrels. Alcohol 14.0%
