Bleasdale Shiraz Langhorne Creek Bremerview 2009
Today's winery has the latest technology but still maintains the family traditions - the Pott's philosophy of producing honest, consistent, reliable wines, which are receiving accolades throughout the world.
2008 Generations Langhorne Creek Opened 2/7/11 Colour: Dark red Nose: Restrained opening up slowly showing some oak, good red fruit plum and black pepper. IN the mouth: Flavours of blackberry, plum, and spice followed by soft dry tannins on the finish.
A medium to full bodied red, tastes like fruitcake and cinnamon spice. Blackberry & smokey oak on the palate. Classy Langhorne shiraz.
An excellent wine at an excellent value. Well balanced with fruit up front and a spicy finish. A fine compliment to hearty dishes, or on its own with an hour to breathe.
I was hoping I'd like this more due to its price point, given that I usually agree with Parker, and he scored this a 90. The front palate of fruit blackberries and white pepper spices gave me some hope. However, the following oakiness, heat, and imbalanced acidity made this not as pleasurable to sip. There was some lingering garrigue-type tastes to this. Probably attributable to the fact I found out later on that this is a 100% shiraz - which I usually do not like, so I may be biased.
Intense and fruity.
3.5 is certainly fair. I do not have the sophisticated nose to opine on blackberries, white pepper or acidity, but I enjoyed drinking it much more than most straight shiraz, especially in this price point. It is well worth $14-20, with reasonable fruit, structure, and a pleasant finish. Great for a barbecue as well.
External Reviews for Bleasdale Shiraz Langhorne Creek Bremerview
Mittleres Weinrot, in der Nase offenes Bouquet mit Eukalyptus und feiner Kräuternote. Steinfrüchte-kompott, in der Jugend leichte Ledernote, etwas Tabak und Holz, ausgewogen. Die gut stützende Säure gibt dem Wein eine ansprechende Länge.
"From the exceptional 2006 comes this Shiraz showing intense varietal characteristics of dark cherries and ripe plums. On the nose
A great value, the 2001 Shiraz Bremerview boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as a big, peppery, sweet nose of blackberries and currants with notions of underbrush and earth in the background. Ripe, fleshy, and hedonistic, it will provide enjoyment over the next 5ndash;7 years.
