Bleasdale Mulberry Tree Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Mid-crimson; an elegant medium-bodied wine with clear-cut varietal presence on both the bouquet and palate, skewed towards red fruits rather than black, and with fine-grained tannins on the finish. The moderate alcohol gives the wine freshness and vitality.

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
A sweet, slightly jammy bouquet of raspberries, cedar/ vanilla oak and herbaceous undertones precedes a smooth, juicy and polished palate. Underpinned by fine-grained, faintly sappy tannins and tightly knit with oak, it's bright and evenly ripened, with a pleasing length of flavour. Its just marginally too green-edged for a higher rating.

An honest, if rather baked shorter term red whose rather jammy, confectionery aromas of raspberries, cassis, blackberries and plums are backed by restrained cedar/vanilla oak and nuances of dried herbs. Supple and elegant, with some underlying firmness and structure, it's forward and sweetly fruited, but then dries out towards a dehydrated and dull finish of currant-like flavour.

Jeremy Oliver (2007 Vintage) says
Elegant and balanced, but just slightly cooked, this smooth and polished cabernet has a lightly smoky and herbal bouquet of dark plums, blackberries, cassis and sweet vanilla oak whose undertones of mint and menthol also pervade its long and mineral palate. Underpinned by fine, drying and grippy tannins, it finishes with a hint of saltiness.

Good old cabernet. Its aristocratic nature just refuses to be repressed. Here we have a wine that tastes of attractive, easy-going blackcurrant, mint and dust-like character. Its tannin structure has a sternness to it Ä it's supposed t o be cuddly, but it walks far too proud for that. Mind, it's a very good drink as a result.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
Here's a good-value proposition that showcases the innate strength of Langhorne Creek reds. Charming ripe berry fruit aromas, leaves, ripe herbs and neat oak too. The palate rolls purple berry flavour along on soft, easy tannins.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
Restrained flavours of slightly stewed dark berries and plums are backed by earthy, seaweed and iodide-like nuances. Supported by a slightly insipid spine of green-edged tannin, its moderately full palate lacks genuine length and ripeness, finishing with briney, salty notes.

Good reds at very good prices... Bleasdale keeps on keeping on. You can't go wrong. It's soft and smooth and, while it's not packed with flavour, it delivers enough to keep most red drinkers very happy. Blackcurrant, gum leaves, the odd note of briar - it's all good, clean and attractive.

A soft, light- to medium-bodied palate; black fruits plus touches of mocha and coffee; minimal tannins.

Great colour; strong varietal expression of blackcurrant, mint and cassis; firm but ripe tannins. Great value.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Jammy, sweet and simple, this long, firm and fine-grained young cabernet has a slightly cooked aroma of dark plums, red berries, blackberries and cedary oak with light minty undertones. Sumptuously backed by chocolate/cedary oak, its juicy and slightly sweet palate of dark berry and plum-like flavours is firm and fine-grained, but just a little simple and straightforward.

Ken Gargett (2004 Vintage) says
Look under any vine in Langhorne Creek and chances are you'll find a Potts. They are on their millionth generation at Bleasdale, the family winery, producing seriously enjoyable, top value wines from a woefully underappreciated region. Most of us have no idea how many of the wines we enjoy are sourced entirely or partly from this area. The big companies take truckloads of fruit from here, and with good reason—the stuff is topnotch.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Flavoursome and approachable, this firm but early-drinking red presents a slightly cooked and earthy expression of cabernet, with hints of stress beneath its cassis, plum and cherry-like fruit. It lacks great length and finishes slightly raw and cedary, with mint/menthol undertones.

Elegant medium-bodied wine, with gently sweet fruit; pleasing structure and tannins.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Fractionally sappy and under-ripe, with a delicate minty fragrance of cassis and raspberries over light vanilla oak. Smooth and supple, its delicate, pristine and polished palate of sweet small berries finishes with minty notes and a slightly metallic grip.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; the clean, moderately intense bouquet has clear-cut savoury/spicy cabernet fruit; the fresh, fruit-driven palate is again focused on red berry fruit, finishing with soft tannins. Good value.
