Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This full bodied Australian red from Langhorne Creek is simply delicious! Frank Potts founded Bleasdale in 1858 and the family six generations later is the second oldest wine family in Australia. A fragrant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Beautifully balanced and quite complex - lots of rich, dark fruit, plum, cassis, violet, earth and smoke. Lengthy vanilla dipped blackberry finish. Decanting suggested.
Lise Charest Gagne rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Great value on this garnet beauty blend! I love the fact that the blend is big without loads of pepper (likely due to the absence of Syrah). Full body dark red and black fruit, plums, violets and spice. It has a nice round smokey feel without being sharp. It's loaded with aroma and is powerful yet structured and layered. Tastes like big dark fruit, it's not jammy or stewed. Has a long finish and a hint of spicy vanilla. I'm not into big bold reds but I really like this one and I can imagine it being over the top in a few years, the problem is I want to drink it all now. Enjoyed with a slice of rosemary roast beef, oven roasted carrots and parsnips and garlic - Parmesan fingerling potatoes with a side of horseradish. Tasted in Oct of 2017.
From Langhorne Creek in South Australia, Bleasdale Frank Potts (2013) is a red Bordeaux blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, 10% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Merlot. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
