Frank Potts was not a man given to procrastination. He simply rolled up his sleeves and got the job done. At age nine, Frank joined the British Royal Navy, and by the time he arrived in South Australia in 1836, he had sailed the globe. After purchasing land on the Bremer River, Frank himself cleared it of red gums, planted vineyards, and then used the timber to build his winery. Six generations on, it is his work ethic and enduring legacy that drives everyone at Bleasdale.
This wine is layered and complex with red berry and darker fruit aromas. These characters continue onto the palate, with fruit layers supported by fine oak tannin and lively berry persistence. Bottled without filtration, it is normal for some sediment to form; decanting one - two hours prior to drinking is recommended. Enjoyed in its youth, or cellar for 10-20 years.
