Colour is light straw; the nose is showing white stone fruits with hints of yeasty brioche and some minerality. Subtle, perfectly-balanced French oak.
The palate is tight and finely structured, with an incredible acid line running through.
White peach fruits dominate, with hints of citrus.
The wine has a perfect balance of fruit to acid which will see cellaring potential for 10 - 15+ years.
Lake's Folly Cabernets is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, 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.
