Bleasdale has been making wine in Langhorne Creek for 169 years now - but still tends to fly a little under the radar of casual drinkers. For those in the know it is a small winery with a big reputation. Winemaker Paul Hotker has significantly standards in recent vintages and this is one of a range of reds offering excellent value for money. You won't find many better balanced reds around $20 than this - a medium-bodied, elegant offering with classic berry and chocolate aromas and flavours. Very smooth and a great partner for a roast lamb en croute, or a fillet steak with mushroom sauce. $20. www.bleasdale.com.au.
