HUON HOOKE'S notes can be read here:
LAKE'S FOLLY CABERNETS 2016 - 95 POINTS - reviewed 16 May 2018 www.therealreview.com
"Deepish red/purple colour, not dark but bright with a very good hue. The bouquet is dominated by charred oak at this point, but there may be some coal-dust Hunter character there as well. There is bright red berry fruit in the centre and the wine is medium to full-bodied and very elegantly tailored. The tannins are fine and tight and balanced, the overall structure and flavour superbly cast and poised. This is one of the best young Folly cabernets I've tasted."
LAKE'S FOLLY CHARDONNAY 2017 - 95 POINTS - reviewed 18 May 2018 www.therealreview.com
"Mid-yellow colour, with a nutty and toasty oak-tinged bouquet, the palate intense and vibrant, penetrating and bright with refreshing acidity cleansing the finish, which is very long and big on sweet, citrusy fruit flavours. A superb wine of formidable persistence."
