Lake's Folly Cabernets 2001

Established in 1963 by Doctor Max Lake, Lake's Folly was the first new vineyard in the Hunter Valley last century. In early 2000, Lake's Folly was purchased by Peter and Lee Fogarty and family who, along with Hunter-born and bred winemaker, Rodney Kempe, have continued to maintain the integrity and direction of this significant vineyard.

2001 proved to be a a good growing season with rain at vintage. This wine is crimson in colour with purple hues. The nose displays cherries and blackberries integrating with sweet oak, a touch of cedary leather, and floral aromas of violets. Some initial berry sweetness, but mid-palate is quite savoury with tannins slightly drying. Not a huge wine, but a structured, tight style that will integrate and improve with time. Definitely a long living wine.
