95 Points - James Halliday
Bleasdale is one of Australia's most historic wineries, which in 2020 celebrated an incredible 170 years of continuous winemaking by the direct descendants of the founding Potts family. A star of the Langhorne Creek wine region, the impressive range of wines are overseen by the talented Paul Hotker ('Winemaker Of The Year' - 2018 Halliday Wine Companion).
Bleasdale have long been regarded one of Australia's leading makers and advocates of Malbec having grown the variety since the late 1880's. While Malbec is rarely seen as a standalone wine in Australia, Bleasdale have been championing the varietal for many years, consistently delivering impressive results.
This 2019 Bleasdale Second Innings Malbec is a brilliant entry point to Bleasdale's Malbec, which has received plenty of deserved high-praise (95 Points | Halliday Top 100 Wines of 2020). A delicious red wine ideal for enjoying during the cooler months this delivers plenty of blackberry, plum and red berry flavours with a touch of olive, subtle toasty oak and spice. Finishing soft and round with velvety tannins, this is a versatile red that offers super value drinking at this price.
"95 Points. Bleasdale can't put a foot wrong with malbec at whatever price point it chooses. This is flooded with plum varietal fruit, but also has the texture and back-palate structure that many malbecs miss out on. Winemaker Paul Hotker is a wiz. $22. 14% alc. Drink by 2027. Screwcap"- James Halliday, Top 100 Wines of 2020.
Established in 1850 by Frank Potts, Bleasdale is one of Australia's most historically significant wineries, which in 2015 celebrated an incredible 165 years of continuous winemaking by the direct descendants of the founding Potts family.
One of the stars of the Langhorne Creek wine region, the impressive range of wines are made by Paul Hotker; who was the recent recipient of 'Winemaker Of The Year' in Halliday Wine Companion 2018.
The philosophy of the Bleasdale winemaking team is to capture the essence of what makes Langhorne Creek red wines so attractive - vibrancy, harmony and texture. Cabernet Sauvignon has elegance and captivating depth of flavour, Shiraz is a ripe fruit style with refined cool climate spice elements and Malbec is perfumed and finely structured.
