2017 Bremerview Shiraz
The Bleasdale Bremerview Shiraz pays homage to Frank Potts’ system of locks and weirs, constructed in the 1850’s and 60’s along the River Bremer, to capture winter floodwaters and irrigate vines. This long standing and robust system for controlling floodwater occasionally comes into use when rainfall is high and the river flows breach the established floodbank. An expressive, medium to full bodied wine showing intense lifted dark berry fruits and spice. The palate is vibrant with dense blackberry and fresh plum flavours complemented by liquorice and pepper spice.
Langhorne Creek is one of Australia's best-kept viticulture secrets, having a cool maritime climate than found in South Australia, where winemakers produce some of Australia’s most incredible red and white wines. The region is nestled among gum trees on the Bremer and Angas rivers and is less than a one-hour drive from Adelaide.
