Since inaugural release, Lake Breeze has developed a reputation for producing concentrated red wines with an abundance of fruit and the finest tannins. A full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon wine from fruit picked off fully mature vines, forty years of age on the Follett family property. The dry grown vines rely on winter flooding of the Bremer River, vital to carry things through the dry summer months, as Langhorne Creek receives very little rain. Traditional open fermentations are employed, a course of maceration may last up to three weeks. The finished wine is matured in a combination of French and American oak barriques for twenty months prior to bottling after minimal filtration.
Magnificent deep colour, velvety appearance and scarlet robes. A complex array of mint and blackcurrant aromas along with cedary oak notes. The concentrated palate exhibits a lovely silky texture, well layered chocolate and cassis flavours before a wonderfully long, soft tannin finish.
