Enjoy with your favourite grilled meat dishes.
French and American oak barrels (new and seasoned).
Deep purple with a regal purple hue.
Fresh cracked pepper and a hint of grilled nectarine. Plum pudding and blackberry compote, a hint of rose oil and just a waft of violets.
Entry: Rich and enticing and fragrant red fruits. Wafts of cedar and lifted cigar box characters. Middle Palate: Juicy round blackberry sweetness, tempered with some taught but typical Shiraz tannin. After Palate: A rainbow of juicy fruit flavours that coats the mouth with rolling soft, fine-grained fruit tannin. Finish: Malt, cedar and intense blackberry and caramelised orange peel. Minutes later, the flavour still lingers on.
The fruit for the Lake Doctor comes from a single block in the 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 to 12 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.
