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
The Langhorne Creek is situated south-east of Adelaide and is a premium viticultural
region with cooling lake and ocean breezes. The vines have an average age of 40
years and are cultivated on their own rootstocks in soils that are generally alluvial sandy
loam with some parts over a clay base. This dry region, situated at the bottom of the
Murray River, is irrigated by a weir floodgate system. The vineyards are surrounded by
striking, historically important gum trees that still bear the holes that were once dug out
by the Aboriginal Australians which were carved into canoes to sail up the river. The Bull
Ant depicted on the label refers to the ants that were discovered in the vineyard when
it was first planted, their propensity for biting encouraged swift work in the vineyard!
Winemaking
Fruit selection was paramount for this wine. The grapes were fermented on their skins in
small, eight tonne, open static tanks; which lasted for seven days with hand pumpingover and rack and returns thrice daily. The young wine was then pressed to oak
barriques to complete the fermentation. The wine was then matured for 15 months in
French and American oak.
