Has many merits, though the colour is too reddish. That said, it has lovely, lacy mouthfeel and texture, and a spicy, rancio finish. Exceptional value. Read more

Tasting Notes

One of the main features of Bleasdale fortified wines is the maturation conditions. Langhorne Creek is quite a cool maritime climate, which helps retain freshness and acidity in the grapes as well as maturing wines. Old oak barrels are stashed high into the rafters under the hot tin roof to encourage evaporation and concentration, but Langhorne Creek is significantly cooler than many other traditional fortified regions so freshness is largely retained. This Grand Tawny is Grenache dominant, but is blended with Shiraz, Verdelho, Mataro and Tinta Roriz .This wine is blended to a minimum age of 7 years and has great spice with brandy snap and chocolate character with freshness and drinkability.

Winemakers Note

Initially matured in small oak casks before transferring to 50-100 year old vats to finish maturation. Blended to a minimum age of 7 years for bottling
