NV Sparkling Shiraz

We select fruit from sandy and stony vineyards in Langhorne Creek, ferment in open vats before maturation in seasoned oak barrels and tank to retain the aromatic lift from these soil types. All small proportion of wine from clay/ loam vineyards fills out the palate and gives the wine length of flavour.
Using a secret liqueuring recipe this richly flavoured, deep coloured sparkling Shiraz displays dark berry fruit aromas, sweet plum flavours, silky tannins and a rich, velvety smooth palate.
Enjoy this classic Australian sparkling wine with Christmas pudding, duck dishes, roast meats or simply by itself. Suggested serving temperature is 8° to 10°C.

Company details

Bremer River Red Gums and Wide Floodplains

Conditions for grape growing in Langhorne Creek are ideal thanks to the natural fertility of the floodplain soils, the ability of those soils to retain moisture from natural winter floods, and the moderation of the local climate by cooling evening breezes from nearby Lake Alexandrina and the Southern Ocean in summer. The red varieties thrive in this rich environment, which explains why over 75% of all wine grapes grown are red wine grapes.After Frank Potts purchased 100 acres in April 1850, it was only a few years before the first 30 acres of Shiraz and Verdelho were planted. The harnessing of the natural flooding of the Bremer River by early grape growers makes the Langhorne Creek region quite unique. Frank Potts developed a system of levees and floodgates to capture and divert a metre of water and nutrient rich silt across the entire vineyard. The vigour in growth caused by this natural abundance of water sometimes presented challenges, but it is now managed by modern viticultural practices.

Langhorne Creek experiences relatively low annual rainfall, so supplementary drip irrigation is used to provide the vines with every opportunity to produce optimal fruit. The soils for Bleasdale’s vineyards range from well drained, alluvial soils to brown loams over limestone.

Over the years, further varieties were planted including Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay. As Bleasdale grew it established contract grape growing arrangements with an increasing number of growers. Some of these relationships are entering their third generation of arrangements. New varieties and varietal clones are regularly being trialled as well.

In 2011, Bleasdale began sourcing Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc from the cooler Adelaide Hills region, and has quickly built a reputation for quality and value white wines.

Bleasdale’s Langhorne Creek red wines have fine tannin and fruit structure, and are highly regarded for their complexity and longevity; whilst the white wines of the Adelaide Hills display elegant fruit, balance and length of flavour.
