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 James Halliday
Youthful hue; young and raw bouquet showing lively cranberry fruit, florals and lots of toasty oak; the palate is drawn together by zesty acidity, and fine fruit character in balance with the medium-bodied structure of the wine; time is needed for integration, but the journey will be rewarding. Drink to 2025.
