Bleasdale Vineyards is Langhorne Creek's founding winery. Established in 1850 by English migrant Frank Potts, Bleasdale remains one of Australia's oldest and most acclaimed wineries, being bestowed the prestigious title of '2024 Winery of the Year' at the 2024 Halliday Wine Companion Awards.
This 2021 Bleasdale Mulberry Tree Cabernet Sauvignon follows in the footsteps of popular recent vintages of this wine; elegant and approachable with plenty mixed berries and lifted violets the nose. The palate is smooth and persistent, with blackcurrant and spicy oak flavours, before finishing with soft and subtle tannins. A brilliant value Cabernet at this discounted price.
"95 Points. Destemmed and crushed to open fermenters; matured for 12 months in French puncheons (10% new). Finesse and elegance are the last words expected for a young cabernet, but they describe this most attractive wine. Has won a string of silver and gold medals"- James Halliday, The Weekend Australian, February 3, 2023.
"95 Points. There’s plenty to consider here: the tightness of structure, the distinctive earthiness of the regional terroir, and the delightfully obvious Cabernet fruit with its herbal interaction and black berry power. It is quite the archetypal Langhorne Creek Cabernet style. Peppercorn, Szechuan pepper, green leaf, briar, bramble, a splash of peppermint and black fruits, not necessarily in that order, but lifted and super fragrant on the bouquet. Smooth tannins allow the full enjoyment of the fruit and spice on the palate, aiding and abetting the intensity and length of flavour. Medium bodied and tightly woven with a touch of earthy savouriness with a herbal, leafy lift on the finish. It must be said that Mulberry Tree is one of the region’s most consistent Cabernet performers year after year. It also excels above its modest price. $22. Drink: 2022 - 2030"- Jeni Port, winepilot.com.
