Lake's Folly's main production is focused on two wines, which consistently rate in the best of their type in Australia.
Our wines are grown, vintaged and made on the Estate.

Colour is light straw; the nose has creamy peach aromas, subtle oak and a hint of fresh lime. The palate is a finer style with peach and oatmeal characters. At release time, the wine is more refined and lean in style, but with time will display its typical creamy richness. Definitely a fruit-driven style that will live for many years.
Lake's Folly Cabernets is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Shiraz made from low-yielding, estate-grown, hand-picked fruit. The fruit is open-fermented producing softer, more subtle tannins, and then transferred to large old casks for six months for settling, and then into small French oak barriques (new and one- and two-year-old) for approximately one year before bottling. Excellent long-term cellaring potential of up to
20 years, depending on the vintage.

Deep brick red colour, with aromas of dark fruits like black cherry, hints of violets, liquorice and charred oak. The palate is soft and generous for a medium-bodied wine. Blackberry fruits flow onto the palate – the wine has its trademark length of flavour and excellent fruit sweetness and balance.
