Bleasdale have been making wine for over 160 years and have really hit their stride in the last 10 years or so, producing consistently exceptional kit. Bleasdale’s ‘father’ Frank Potts planted Shiraz and Verdelho vines in the 1850s and built most of the original winery and equipment himself. 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 ...

Crispy Pork & Papaya Salad
Crispy Pork & Papaya Salad
Pork is one of my favourite meats to eat – so versatile and great at anytime of the day too! This dish calls on my times travelling around Asia and having crazy good crispy skin pork, unbelievably flavourful dipping sauces and fresh & spicy salads.

Moroccan meatballs, tagine of caramelised onions and eggplant with roasted cauliflower
Moroccan flavours are some of my favourite. Generally, in common with Italian, Indian and many other cuisines, the food choices depend on what's local, in season and cheap. Moroccan food for me has the perfect blend of exciting spices and aromas, fresh herbs and accompaniments and the permission to make food organically sweet.

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
