Bleasdale continues to showcase the ability of Langhorne Creek to produce quality individualistic wines. Shiraz and Grenache were originally grown in Langhorne Creek for fortified winemaking but are proving to be excellent for table wine. Nurtured from small parcels into a vibrant, delicious drink. Shiraz and Grenache de-stemmed together to open fermenters for a short pre-ferment maceration. Gentle pump overs initially, increasing to 4 times daily with ferment peak at 30oC. Drained & pressed after 10 days, settled for 24 hours before racking to tank and oak for maturation for 6 months in aged French oak puncheons and stainless steel to retain freshness. Further blending with select parcels before bottling.
