The youngest of Frank Potts the second’s eleven children, Lloyd Stanley (Sticky) Potts, was a motorcycling enthusiast all his life. In 1932 he entered his first Australian Grand Prix at Philip Island and came second. The front label depicts a young Sticky practicing his speedway “Broad-Side” turns.
This wine shows the harmony of these three varietals with plum and blackcurrant fruits, typical chocolate character from the Shiraz and boysenberry spice from the Malbec.
The palate is juicy with persistent flavour and smooth velvety tannins. This is the follow-up to the hugely successful Trophy-winning 2013 vintage, which looks set to continue Bleasdale’s great reputation for crafting memorable reds.
In the glass: Deep red.
On the nose: Perfumed aromas of violets over black fruits, chocolate and toasty oak.
On the palate: Saturated with dark fruit flavour, it’s a velvety smooth wine with fine tannins, refreshing acidity and impressive length and persistence.
