Cabernets Blend 1999

New South Wales

Lake's Folly continues to challenge all winemaking logic by crafting outstanding cabernet in the Lower Hunter Valley. James Haliday

Tasting Notes

Enticing ruby red with a thin brick hue. Lovely hints of leather and earth with notes of ripe black cherry and raspberry. Primary blackberry fruits are still evident, but starting to give way to cedar and cigar box which seamlessly melts into those refined tannins. Sturctured, but very elegant. Reminiscent of a top notch St-Julien in a good year.

LAKE'S FOLLY

Established by the late Dr. Max Lake in 1963, Lake's Folly is Australia's first boutique winery. The vineyard, the first established since the early 1900s, was planted on the volcanic and alluvial soils adjacent to Rosehill, in the lower Hunter Valley. 'The vineyard is everything' underscores overall winemaking philosophy. Lake’s Folly is best known for their elegant age-worthy White Label Cabernet blend and Yellow Label Chardonnay.
