Lake Breeze Does It With Ease

By Friday 13 May 2022September 28th, 2023No Comments

Prolific wine trophy winner Lake Breeze won Champion Wine of Show at the Langhorne Creek Wine Show for the fourth show in a row.

Lake Breeze Wines 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon was the highest-scoring wine of the show and also won the Orora Beverages-Stelvin Closures Best Cabernet Sauvignon Trophy.

Lake Breeze also won the Vinpac Trophy for Best Sparkling Wine, White Wine or Rosé with its 2021 Reserve Chardonnay and the Cooperages 1912 Trophy for Best Blended Red Wine for its 2019 Arthur’s Reserve.

The 2013 Arthur’s Reserve also won the CCL Industries Best Museum or Fortified Wine Trophy.

To complete a big haul of trophies, Lake Breeze Wines 2020 Bull Ant Shiraz also snapped up the Project Wine Trophy for Best Shiraz of the show.

Chair of judges Charlie Seppelt was joined by Pablo Theodoros from the Stanley Bridge Tavern, Marie Clay from Treasury Wine Estates and writer Tony Love.

“This year’s Langhorne Creek Wine Show really was something to behold,” Charlie says.

“Across all classes were wines made with care, detailed thought and restraint.

“Rosé and white classes lifted the bar considerably with fresh exuberance and style.

“Alternate red varieties continue to be a growing and glowing set of wines to judge with lovely pure wines of high drinkability.

“The classic varieties for the region of Shiraz, Malbec and Cabernet were once again the strength of the show with all proving their class and stature for the region.”

Kimbolton Wines took home the Belvidere Winery Award for Producer of the Year, presented to the winery with the highest total of judges’ points calculated from their three highest-pointed wines from across the Sparkling, White or Rose and Red Wine classes.

The Peats Soil and Garden Supplies Award for Viticulturist of the Year was awarded to Sarah Keough.

The show judged 190 entries from 28 exhibiting wineries, with 134 medals awarded. Associate judges were Jackson Janz and Siddharth Pachare.
