Bleasdale Potts' Catch Verdelho Langhorne Creek 2012

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine for a mere £1 from the www.cellartrade.co.uk website.Langhorne Creek is an inlet just 50 miles south-east of the City of Adelaide in South Australia and Frank Potts founded the first winery there in the 19th century.Because he was a keen fisherman this cuvee is called 'Potts Catch' and there is a picture of a fisherman on the label. This is an area of very low rainfall so growers harness the natural flooding of the Bremer river with a system of levees and floodgates.My bottle is made from the verdelho grape,a variety planted on the island of Madeira,but now used all over the world for still white wines such as this. I started my bottle last night with my supper of fish and chips.It is a dry wine but there is plenty of a honey,lime,elderflower,melon and peach style fruit. There are certainly plenty of flavours there and I cannot call it mineral or bland.In short,this is an absolutely lovely white wine that would pair with many foods.
