The Lake Doctor has picked up countless medals, Golds and Silvers across multiple wine shows, many on the international circuit. It's no wonder why they taste a glass of this Shiraz and go 'wow'! With a basketful of juicy, fragrant red fruit and blackberry, the sweetness runs parallel with tangy cedar and dried spice characters. Soft fine grain tannins and a structure that will allow you to cellar for a decade or more to come.

Pepper spice and a hint of dark berry fruit on the nose. Plum pudding and blackberry pie, with just a waft of violets.

Palate

Rich and soft entry with fragrant red fruits. Some tangy cedar and dried spice characters. Juicy round blackberry sweetness follows, tempered with a clotted crema texture with taught but typical Shiraz tannin. A basket full of juicy fruit flavour that fans out in the mouth with rolling soft, fine grain fruit tannin. Minutes later, the flavour still lingers.

Background

Named after the house-cooling breeze of our 'Lake Doctor' which arrives from the Great Southern Ocean direct from Antarctica and revives vines and vignerons alike in the peak of summer. Drink with anything off the grill (preferably charcoal), and especially a second glass. Not just about the fruit, it's earthy too and what we have always loved about Langhorne Creek is they produce cracker wines - consistently. 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 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.
