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 average age of the Lake Breeze vines
is 25 years, with youngest plantings taking place 12 years ago and the oldest vines
having been planted 35 years ago. All of the vines 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, only the best blocks are retained for the Bullant label
and often it is only the fruit from the best rows of these blocks. The grapes were
fermented on their skins for seven days in small, open fermenters. A daily regime of
three rack and returns and pumpovers, ensured the desired level of extraction.
Matured in French and American oak for 16 months, with the aim of softening the wine,
while retaining primary fruit characters. The wine was not fined or filtered prior to
bottling.
Tasting Note
