The Lake Breeze Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 has a magnificent deep colour, velvety appearance and scarlet robes.
Aromas of mint and blackcurrant along with cedary oak notes, with a concentrated palate exhibiting a lovely silky texture, with a well layered chocolate and cassis flavours before a wonderfully long, soft tannin finish.
Traditional open fermentation was employed followed by maturation in French oak barriques for 20 months, prior to bottling.

The varieties grown on the vineyard include cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and chardonnay, with smaller amounts of grenache, merlot, petit verdot, malbec and vermentino.
Lake Breeze selects only the best 40% of fruit from the older vines for its wines. The majority of the fruit used is carefully selected from old vines, between 50 and 55 years old, with the oldest vines being our 85 year old Grenache.
Langhorne Creek is one of Australia's oldest wine grape districts. Vineyards were first planted in the 1860's at Langhorne Creek on the banks of the Bremer River. The region rests between the Adelaide Hills and Lake Alexandrina, only a one hour drive from Adelaide.
Langhorne Creek is renowned for its full bodied red wines, the grapes have an intense quality due to the location and unique natural influences. Cool afternoon breezes from Lake Alexandrina help to create a surprisingly cool climate, which allows for a longer, more even ripening period. This is coupled with deep, rich alluvial soil, which is deposited by the unique annual flooding of the Bremer River.
Langhorne Creek has always been a grape growing district with a group of old families who have been producing grapes for generations on the Bremer's edge. It wasn't until the 1990's that the district experienced rapid expansion.
There were fewer than 1,100 acres of established vines in 1991, which today has grown to more than 12,000 acres. Expansion from these humble beginnings has been possible due to the utilisation of the nearby Lake Alexandrina and its fresh water. Winery Notes
