Lake's Folly 2021 Cabernets
Lifted blueberry, raspberry and fresh cherry aromas with hints of liquorice and black pepper, that carry over to the palate. This vintage was made using about 15% whole-bunch pressed fruit that gives this Cabernet blend another added layer. A medium-bodied style, it is classy and nicely balanced, with a lovely tannin- to-fruit- sweetness ratio, that creates a textural, stylish wine. 13.0% Alcohol.
Lake's Folly 2022 Chardonnay
Colour is golden straw. Nose shows lifted fruits of peach, pear juice and citrus, with hints of spice and dried oats. The palate is tight and fine, with the same fruits of peach and pear juice coming through, along with subtle but perfectly-integrated French oak. Elegant, stylish, with great acidity to give length and persistence. A great wine that will benefit further time in bottle to fully realise its potential. 13.5% Alcohol.
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 format 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.
