2022 Lake’s Folly Hill Block Chardonnay Hunter Valley – Established in 1963 by Doctor Max Lake, Lake’s Folly was the first new vineyard in the Hunter Valley last century. In early 2000, Lake’s Folly was purchased by Peter and Lee Fogarty and family who, along with Hunter-born and bred winemaker, Rodney Kempe, have continued to maintain the integrity and direction of this significant vineyard.
The ‘Hill’ at Lake’s Folly is, without question, one of the finest viticultural sites in the Hunter Valley. Heavy, red soil overlays a distinctive limestone layer that produces wine of exceptional depth and character. Slightly richer in style than the ‘traditional’ Chardonnay produced from the original plantings grown on the flat, Hill Block Chardonnay will drink well for the next 3 to 5 years, and beyond.
Colour is bright straw/gold, with a green hue. The nose displays aromas of ripe white peach, sweet classy oak, coupled with hints of yeast and oatmeal. The palate is fine and fruit-driven, pure and classy, with slight lees texture, and the finish is long, with a soft but defined spine of natural acidity that should see this wine age well for up to 10 years – a sensational wine!
