Langhorne Creek, South Australia   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Lake Breeze is one of Australia's most awarded boutique wineries, including being named Australia's Champion Small Winery. The Follett family have been grape growers in Langhorne Creek for over 120 years and winemakers for 24 years and have rapidly built an enviable reputation for consistently producing outstanding wines. The 2017 Lake Breeze Reserve Chardonnay is another elegant, yet complex and textured offering from the team at Lake Breeze.

"The grapes for the 2017 Reserve Chardonnay were picked from the most outstanding block of chardonnay on the property and gently pressed prior to barrel fermentation and maturation in French oak. Elements of wild yeast fermentation, extended time on yeast lees and partial malo-lactic fermentation have added complexity and enhanced the natural citrus and nectarine flavours in the wine. An elegant wine with a long and textured finish, which has the capacity to age gracefully in the bottle over the next 6 to 8 years" - Lake Breeze.

The surprisingly cool, maritime conditions at Langhorne Creek allow for a slow even ripening where fresh natural acidity and 
varietal fruit characters are retained.
