Bleasdale Iron Duke Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

94 pts James Halliday- Deep crimson-purple; the Iron Duke indeed: a full-bodied cabernet taking no prisoners.

Tasting Notes

The Iron Duke celebrates Frank Potts pioneering community leadership. This wine is a blend from the best parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2013 harvest. Produced in limited quantities, this wine shows distinct varietal character and purity. Medium bodied with an infusion of French oak flavour and firm lingering tannins.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

94 pts James Halliday
Open-fermented, 8-12 days on skins, matured for 12 months in French oak (25% new), one trophy, three gold medals. Deep crimson-purple; the Iron Duke indeed: a full-bodied cabernet taking no prisoners. Don’t fight, you won’t win. Just find a cool, dark place, leave it there for a minimum of 20 years and then start the discussion.

92 pts Vinous
- Glass-staining ruby. Powerful dark fruit, incense, cola and oak spice aromas are energized by suggestions of black pepper and smoky minerals that build in the glass. Sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering intense blackberry, cherry cola, vanilla and spicecake flavors that slowly put on weight as the wine opens up. Velvety tannins build slowly on the clinging finish, which emphatically echoes the spice and floral notes.



Winemaker Notes

De-stemmed & crushed to open fermenters. Pumped over up to 4 times daily during peak fermentation. Drained & pressed after 8 to 12 days on skins, settled for 24 hours before racking to oak for MLF. Vineyard Bleasdale Mullianna and Reed Patch Vineyards. Specialist Growers, Langhorne Creek, South Australia
