Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

Bleasdale are one of the oldest wineries in the historic region of Langhorne Creek and are continue to produce wines that are true to the area and Verdelho was one of the first varieties planted by the founder, Frank Potts. Here’s a Verdelho that’s ripe and tropical enough to give Sauvignon Blanc a run for its money. It’s perfumed with melon and tinned fruit salad and delivers a refreshing palate with naturally crisp acids. Drinking well now it can also be cellared in the medium term to develop secondary characters of honey and toast.

Winemaker's Notes

Verdelho was amongst the first varieties planted in Langhorne Creek and still thrives today. Potts' Catch also includes Verdelho from the barrel shed block - 1930. A crisp white wine with great perfume and fruit salad flavours. Enjoy chilled, naturally a great accompaniment to fish and seafood dishes.

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
Soft and fruity with apple blossom and nashi pear lingering on a clean, crisp plate. Drink it as soon as possible, well chilled with sushi.

Lime and fresh quince on the bouquet; fresh and vibrant fruit with tangy acidity and a clean focus to the conclusion.

Concentrated, pungent fruit nose and nicely balanced palate with flavoursome citrus/tropical fruit intensity.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Quite firm, with citrus and mineral more to the fore than is fruit salad; does have length.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Old vines add to the intensity of the fruit salad flavours, and the cool climate of the region gives freshness and acidity to also lift it from the ruck.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Plenty of fruit salad dressed with zingy, lemony acidity; long experience with the variety produces a particularly good example. Value-plus.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2004 Vintage) says
The 2004 vintage has been an excellent one for Langhorne Creek verdelho and so this dependable label has an extra spring in its step: a lift on its fragrant nose, great depth of tropical fruit flavours (guava, passionfruit) and zesty acidity on a finish that lingers.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2000 Vintage) says
A terrific vintage for this Langhorne Creek producer. The unwooded Bleasdale Verdelho, from the Sandhill vineyard, has rarely looked better than this: it has wonderful, tropical fruit perfumes, delicious tangy, ripe, sweet passionfruit characters and a crisp, clean finish that lingers. The 2000 Verdelho is fresh, full, vibrant, flavoursome and close to irrestible.
