Bleasdale Vineyards Generations Langhorne Creek Malbec 2016
FIVE Gold, two Trophies, 96pts! As Halliday says, "Bleasdale is the master of Malbec in Australia"
Winemaker Paul Hotker,
a “master blender”, was Halliday’s 2018 Winemaker of the Year. The Generations Malbec shows his immense skill and style – and reiterates Halliday’s assertion that “Bleasdale is the master of Malbec in Australia.”
“Individual blocks picked and vinified separately ... open-fermented, 9 days
on skins, matured for 12 months in French puncheons (12% new). The wine effortlessly takes hold of every aspect of the palate, with layered plum and black forest flavours, just the modest amount
of new oak and tannins. Grown and made in this fashion dispenses with the need for shiraz or cabernet to provide structure ... 96pts” (Halliday).
