New Releases April 2015

 

And another year has passed us by... I swear they go faster each time!  It is now again time to offer our new release wines.

This release also sees the return of our Chardonnay in Magnum format (1.5 Litre bottle), and the Cabernets is also available in 3 Litre Bottles.  These bottle formats are not available every year, so please order early if you don't want to miss out!

 

TASTING NOTES

2014 Chardonnay           95 / 100

2014 was touted by many as the greatest Hunter Valley vintage in recent history.  The 2014 Chardonnay displays peach aromas with a hint of marzipan.  The palate is rich and juicy, with a lovely creamy texture and nice supporting French oak. A fruit-driven style that highlights the terroir traits for which Lake's Folly has become famous (style, structure, finesse, length). Drinking well now; even better in 5 - 10 years.

2013 Cabernets              95 / 100

Lifted perfumed nose of red cherries and cassis, with scents of violets and charry cedar.  It is clean, pure and vibrant.  The palate is silky and smooth, with fine seamless tannins, and a great mid-palate sweetness and a long finish.  A medium bodied style reminiscent of the great '93 vintage.  This wine will show its full potential in 10 to 12 years when it will be graceful and stylish - not unlike a great Burgundy.

 

As always, with limited availability our orders are filled on a first come, first served basis, so please get your order in early to avoid disappointment. YOU CAN PLACE YOUR ORDER ONLINE HERE.

Cheers
