Bleasdale Meritage 2017 is a premium red blend from the Bleasdale winery in South Australia's Langhorne Creek. The term 'Meritage' was designed as a name for dry red blends. Meritage succinctly describes this blend of Shiraz, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon using fruit from Langhorne Creek. Deep red in colour, with a myriad of fruit flavours on the nose and palate. Skilful use of American and French oak accentuates the strong regional fruit characters. Consume it now in the company of full flavoured foods or over the next four to six years.

Background

The term 'Meritage' is used to describe a blend of grape varieties made in the style of the Medoc in France using only Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec or Petite Verdot, with the addition, in Australia anyway, of our national workhorse red, Shiraz. Langhorne Creek, 40 kilometres South East of Adelaide is one of Australia's most unique viticultural regions. Producing top quality fruit which is an integral part of the many famous blends from companies such as Wolf Blass, Penfolds and Stonyfel Metala. However it was the Bleasdale Winery, established in 1850, which pioneered this marvellous district. It remains there today - Australia's second oldest family owned winery.
