Lakes Breeze Arthur's Reserve 2013 or 2018.

The Lakes Breeze Arthur's Reserve is a full boodied red wine made in homage to Arthur Follett who planted the first vines way back in 1880. This is a serious red wine with oodles of blackberry fruit mixed with eucalyptus and subtle oaky, spice. Atrhur's reserve is kep in oak casks for 20 months which softens the tannins and adds extra complexity and character to this magnificent wine.

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.

Vineyard

This stylish wine is a tribute to Arthur Follett, who planted the first vines on the family property in the 1880's. The grapes for the Arthur's Reserve were carefully selected from 40 to 50 year old vines from the family vineyard on the famous Langhorne Creek flood plain.

Winemaking

Small open fermenters were used with maceration times varying from eight to 12 days. The wine was then aged in 100% French Oak for 20 months, with only the best barrels of the vintage chosen for the final blend, which remained unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Note

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot this is crafted from some of the finest hand picked fruit from the Lake Breeze vineyards. An award-winning voluptous red blend of spice, eucalyptus with gentle hints of violets - great longevity ahead as the soft black and blueberry fruit develops more briary and earthy undertones.

Pairs wonderfully with a braised lamb shank and entrecôte.

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.
