"Open and closed fermenters, matured for 12 months in new and used hogsheads. A substantial wine at the upper end of Langhorne Creek's normal weight; the 5% viognier has not had a major influence on the style, but is discernible on the fresh red fruits of the finish." 90 points, James Halliday Wine Companion, October 2016.

Oak

French and American oak barrels (new and seasoned).

Colour

Deep purple with a regal purple hue.

Nose

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.

Palate

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.

Background

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.
