Lakes Breeze Bull Ant Cabernet Merlot 2017

The Lakes Breeze Bullant Cabernet Merlot is a blend of two classic Australian grape varieties that work wonderfully together. This delicious red wine is a delight to drink on its own as the time spent in oak has softened the tannins and left a silky, smooth wine. Try it with a classy burger or steak to bring out the best in its flavours.

Lake Breeze winemaker Greg Follett is part of the 4th generation of Folletts to work on the family property, which has been in the grape growing business in Langhorne Creek for 120 years. Only in the past 25 years have they been making wine, and have rapidly built an enviable reputation for consistently producing outstanding wines. Greg uses exclusively old vine fruit (and the best 30 per cent of that) resulting in wines that are concentrated and rich. He takes a 'hands on' approach, responsible for all facets of the business, from fruit selection through to sales and marketing.

Vintage

A cooler year which is clear in the lifted peppery aromas in the blend.

Vineyard

The vineyards are situated in Langhorne Creek, South Australia. An average vine age of 40 years with all vines being on their own roots. The soils are generally alluvial sandy loam with some over a clay base.

Winemaking

The fruit selection was paramount for this wine. Small, open, static tanks were used for fermentation on the skins, which lasted seven to 12 days. The wine was then pressed straight to oak barriques to complete fermentation, followed by 10 months of maturation in the barrel. The wine was aged in 40% French oak, of which 30% was new and 10% American oak (10% new). The individual components were kept separately before blending and the wine was not fined or filtered prior to bottling.

Tasting Note

An amazing lifted bouquet of blackberries with a touch of mocha. Rich and smooth on the palate it offers a lovely soft finish with polished tannins.

Serving Suggestion

Great with a gourmet cheeseburger or a classic with roast lamb.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
