Bleasdale 'Generations' Malbec 2019

$35.00
Bleasdale have grown Malbec since the late 1800’s and take great pride in it. At time of writing they have no less than 6 different straight Malbec vinos available for sale. This wine, the 2019 Generations Malbec has just picked up a top gold medal and the trophy for best other varietal red at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show. Intense yet generous, it offers violets, blackberries, cream, satsuma plums, porcini and spice on the nose. The palate is black and deeply flavoured; the fruit, acid and tannin perfectly balanced. It is excellent already and will cellar for donkeys. Sorry, this product is not available individually.

In 1961 they produced their first varietal red wine from Malbec and their first sparkling red in 1964.

Around 50km southeast of Adelaide, and just north of Lake Alexandrina, Langhorne Creek is one of the oldest vineyard regions in South Australia. With vines first planted in 1860's, it is predominately a producer of full-bodied reds. Cabernet sauvignon and shiraz do well in the cool climate, and benefit from the unique soils along the riverbanks. The climate is often cool, with southerly winds coming in from the ocean and blowing straight across Lake Alexandrina. Like most South Australian regions, the heat will kick in when the wind comes down from the north in summer, but there are intermittent and not as constant as they are up north in the Barossa ...

Soils are deep, sandy loams, regularly flooded in winter by diverting the nearby Bremer River into the vineyards. This all adds up to vigorous vines with generous
