Established in 1963 by Doctor Max Lake – Lake’s Folly was Australia’s first boutique winery. Peter & Lee Fogarty and family purchased the vineyard in early 2000 and now maintain the quality and integrity of this renowned vineyard along with winemaker Rodney Kempe.

A Cabernet blend and a Chardonnay are the two flagship wines made in limited quantities – both grown, vintaged and bottled on the Estate. The styles are restrained and elegant, showing finesse and complexity – they have clarity of structure and great length of flavour. These highly collectable wines are an institution among Australian fine wine lovers.

Tasting Notes

94 Points Gary Walsh
Dead set this smells like a Pauillac/Hunter cross. Aromas of cassis, pencil, violet, earth, licorice and a little dark chocolate. On the palate it’s supple and smooth with fine grained tannin and flavours of blackcurrant, earth, licorice, chocolate and pencily cedar oak. Beautifully balanced. No alcohol heat but lots of flavour. Very long. I love this wine.
