French and American oak barrels (new and seasoned).
Deep purple with a royal purple hue.
Pepper spice and a hint of macerated dark berry fruit. Plum pudding and blackberry pie with just a whaft of violets.
Entry: Rich and soft and fragrant red fruits. Some tangy cedar and dried spice characters. Middle Palate: Juicy round blackberry sweetness, tempered with clotted crema texture with taught, but typical Shiraz tannin. After Palate: A basket full of juicy fruit flavour that fans out in the mouth with rolling soft, fine grained fruit tannin. Finish: Malt, cedar and intense blackberry. Minutes later, the flavour still lingers.
The fruit for the Lake Doctor comes from a single block inthe heart of the Langhorne Creek. Primary fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel vats and 5 tonne open fermenters after which the wine is assembled into tank and allowed to complete a natural malo-lactic fermentation before being pressed off. It is then transferred to new & well-seasoned hogsheads and aged for up to12 months prior to bottling with minimal filtration. This results in a wine with purity of fruit that is unpretentious and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.
