Bleasdale Vineyards Generations Langhorne Creek Malbec 2017
“Bleasdale is the master of Malbec in Australia...” (Halliday) 95pts!
In Halliday’s words, Bleasdale is “one of the most historic wineries in Australia, in 2015 celebrating 165 years of continuous winemaking by the direct descendants of the founding Potts family.” They have won scores of Golds and Top Trophies – including the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophy in 2019 – a year after winemaker Paul Hotker was named Halliday’s Winemaker of the Year, and their 2016 Generations Shiraz was awarded the Max Schubert AM Trophy for Most Outstanding Red Wine at the 2018 Royal Adelaide Wine Show.
“Malbec seems to shift into a high-toned gear in this moderate maritime region: a cuddly, fleshy ripeness flecked with blue to dark fruit tones, herb and soaring florals uber alles. Cinnamon oak is embedded amidst the ripe, cushiony fruit and yet, unlike shiraz, there is nothing overt or too sweet. 95pts” (Halliday).
