Bleasdale 'Frank Potts' Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2020

Bleasdale 'Frank Potts' Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2020

This wine is crafted from a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot, and 2% Merlot. It exhibits a bright, almost vivid crimson color. Elegant and driven by Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers aromas and flavors of cedar, cigar box, and cassis. Medium-bodied and supple, it evokes the style of an English gentleman's claret.

This winery boasts a rich history spanning over 170 years, making it one of Australia's oldest and most esteemed wine producers. The Potts family, direct descendants of the founders, have upheld a tradition of continuous winemaking. In earlier times, the vineyards benefited from winter floods caused by the Bremer River diversion, ensuring moisture during the dry, cool growing season. However, in recent decades, water conservation has become paramount, prompting significant upgrades and refocusing efforts in the vineyards. Today, Shiraz dominates 45% of plantings, complemented by seven other proven grape varieties. Additionally, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay grapes are sourced from the Adelaide Hills.
