Producer Note
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 and has recently
been awarded the accolade of being Halliday’s Best Value Winery 2022.
Vineyard
This stylish wine is a tribute to Arthur Follett, who planted the first vines on the family
property in the 1880’s. The grapes for the Arthur's Reserve were carefully selected from
40 to 50 year old vines from the family vineyard on the famous Langhorne Creek flood
plain. 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.
Winemaking
Small open fermenters were used with maceration times varying from eight to 12 days.
The wine was then aged in 100% French Oak for 20 months, with only the best barrels of
the vintage chosen for the final blend, which remained unfined and unfiltered.
