What's any special occasion without Bleasdale? Effusive and generous, Bleasdale's effervescent red gives so much more. A richly flavoured sparkler, the poly vintage Bleasdale is assembled from barrels of maturing Shiraz across several years, topped up with liqueur de tirage and treated to a secondary ferment in own bottle. An evocative palate and nose, fruits steeped in liqueur, mint and ribena, supported by a length of luscious coconut/ carob oak and toothsome, cherry ripe tannins.
The historic Bleasdale cellars, constructed from eucalyptus beams and limestone blocks, house a massive red gum lever press, which fifth generation winemaker Michael Potts still uses once a year to make a very limited release wine. While the Bleasdale wineworks are steeped in tradition and local folklore, the estate has installed the latest technology, still maintaining the founding philosophy of producing honest, consistent and reliable wines. From time to time, the Bleasdale team draw on stocks of maturing wines with the requisite qualities to construct a luscious Sparkling Shiraz. The complete course of methode traditionelle is followed by a term of bottle age beneath the Bleasdale cellars. Alcohol 13.5%
TASTING NOTES
Dark purple red, a persistent mousse. Complex cherry liqueur perfume, maraschino and chocolate torte, rancio, cocoa oak and pepper notes. Rich bramble berries on the highly textural palate, red fruits, cherries and vibrantly spiced plum, chocolatety oak and supple tannins lead to a long, memorable finish. A suoerb aperitif wine, easily matched with seasoned kebabs, duckling and pork or chocolate desserts.

More About Bleasdale Winery
Bleasdale is Australia's second oldest, still functioning family owned winery. Bleasdale's wines are the stuff of legend and receive accolades around the world every year
Established in 1850 by English migrant Frank Potts, the Bleasdale vineyards are situated on the fertile flood plains of the Bremer River which run parallel to Langhorne Creek. The area is a low rainfall, cool climate region which produces outstanding wines year after year. Ironically, it was Frank Potts abilities as a sailor that led him to Langhorne Creek to live the life of a landlubber. He saw the potential of the region when he explored it in the 1850s, convinced that the stands of tall red gums promised fertile soils and reliable water. Being a nautical man, it's not surprising that Frank Potts chose to plant a vineyard in a place that for a week or two occasionally becomes an inland sea. He planted his first vines in 1858 selling wine to Thomas Hardy, before expanding his holdings to 30 acres in the 1860s. Since Pott's founding efforts, Langhorne Creek's alluvial soils and favourably cool climate, nurtured by maritime breezes, has attracted many famous winemakers. Bleasdale»
