Below is the February, 2007 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:

 

2003 Lake Breeze

Cabernet Sauvignon

Langhorne Creek, Australia


Lake Breeze WinesLake Breeze is one of Australia's most awarded boutique wineries, achieving an extraordinary level of success in Australian Wine Shows, including 16 trophies and 51 gold medals since 1994.

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied style, using fruit produced from 35-year old vines on the Follett family vineyard. Traditional open fermentation was employed with maceration times varying between 7 - 21 days. The wine was matured in French and American oak barriques for 20 months prior to bottling, with minimal filtration.

It displays a complex array of mint, blackcurrant and cedary oak aromas. These characters are also reflected on the palate, which has silky texture and a wonderfully soft tannin finish. This wine has a cellaring potential of 10 years.

The past 12 vintages of Lake Breeze Cabernet Sauvignon have won three trophies, 20 gold medals and numerous other awards and notoriety, including these for the 2003 vintage:

94/100 James Halliday's 2007 Wine Companion: “Deep color and good hue; abundant blackcurrant fruit supported by fine but positive tannins and oak; a lovely wine.” Drink 2015.

GOLD MEDAL, WINEWISE, August 2006: “A refined, well-balanced Cabernet with very good blackcurrant fruit and an elegance befitting a wine from a cooler region. It's long on the finish and very satisfying. Excellent value.”

Langhorne Creek is one of Australia's oldest and fastest-growing 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.
