Lake Breeze Arthur's Reserve Cabernet Malbec 2013

Lake Breeze Arthur's Reserve Cabernet Malbec 2013

This stylish wine is a tribute to Arthur Follett, who planted the first vines on the family property in the 1880's. A blend of 86% Cabernet, 9% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot, this wine is truly handcrafted from the vineyard through to the finished product. The grapes were carefully selected from 40-50 year old vines from our family vineyard on the famous Langhorne Creek flood plain. Small open fermenters were used with maceration times varying from 8-12 days. The wine was then aged in 100% French Oak for 21 months with only the best barrels of the vintage chosen for the final blend, which remained unfined and unfiltered. The resultant wine shows classic blackcurrant aromas with violets, mint and savoury characters. The palate has great depth and silkiness and shows wonderful intensity and length of flavour. With correct cellaring this wine will drink beautifully over the next 15-20 years.

"An old-school but really good school feel to this wine, offering blue fruits, gum leaf, briar and cedary wood characters, but all the while meshed in a seamless sync of flavours and aromas.  It's generous in the palate set around dusty tannins and a lingering, spicy-herbal finish.  A touch of majesty here."
