Langhorne Creek Cabernet has again been recognised as the region’s tower of strength in the 2019 Multi-Color Langhorne Creek Wine Show, with the pre-eminent trophy for Champion Wine of Show being awarded to Lake Breeze 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon uses fruit produced from 40 year old vines on the Follett family vineyard, situated on the Bremer flood plain at Langhorne Creek.
Traditional open fermentation was employed followed by maturation in French oak barriques for 20 months, prior to bottling. The wine displays a lifted aromatics of black fruits and violets, along with some cedary oak nuances.
The concentrated palate has a lovely silky texture, showing chocolate and cassis flavours and a wonderfully long finish.
