Lake Breeze is located in Langhorne Creek, South Australia, where the Follett family has been farming grapes since the 1880s. The estate is situated on the banks of Lake Alexandrina and the vineyard benefits from the 'lake breeze'. Winemaker Greg Follett was brought up on the farm but left to study winemaking at Roseworthy before heading to make wine in California and France. He returned to his roots and in 1987 started making wine exclusively from the best 30 per cent of his old vine fruit. He rapidly built an enviable reputation for consistently producing outstanding wines and Lake Breeze is now one of the most awarded boutique wineries in Australia.
The average of the vines is 40 years. All vines are on their own roots and the soils are generally alluvial sandy loam, with some over a clay base. Fruit selection is paramount, only the best blocks are retained for the Lake Breeze label and only the best rows of these blocks on a lot of occasions. This dry region, situated at the bottom of the Murray River, is irrigated by a weir floodgate system, and when flooded it has been known for a canoeist to be spotted among the vineyards! The vineyards are surrounded by striking, historically important gum trees that still bear the holes that were once dug out by the Aboriginal Australians to carve into canoes to sail up the river.
Small open static tanks were used for a fermentation on the skins, lasting between seven to 12 days. The wine was then pressed straight to oak barriques to complete fermentation followed by 20 months maturation in these barrels. The barriques were 100% French oak, of which 60% were new. The wine is not fined or filtered, prior to bottling.
