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
Light, brilliantly clear crimson-purple; a 67/13/11/9% blend of cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, shiraz and merlot, open-fermented and French oak-matured; a super-elegant wine with lively red berry fruit flavours, the tannins fine, the oak subtle. Remarkable faith in cork given the taint issues in bygone decades.
