Lake Breeze Bullant Langhorne Creek Cabernet Merlot CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Langhorne Creek South Australia
It was lunch in the vineyard as it ticked past 12 o'clock, when I saw a sight I'll never forget on that red soiled block. It started with a shuffle but turned into a dance. The boys shook about like they wanted out of their pants! As it turned out they were losing a fight. Trying to avoid the bullants, and boy can they bite. They ran from the block and couldn't be seen, until they returned much later with a can of Mortein! We've since dealt with those bullants and they no longer bite. But their memory still lingers when we pour a glass of Bullant each night.

Parcels of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are picked at optimum ripeness off old vines grown to family owned and operated vineyards around the rich flood plains of Langhorne Creek. The well drained soils receive a deposition of silt during the annual floods, which ensures that the fertility remains at a high level. Maceration of the grapes whilst on skins has imparted to the Bullant an excellent array of varietal flavours, deep colours and silky textures. A ripe, full bodied wine which has integrated beautifully after fifteen months maturation in a selection of the finest oak.
Deep red purple in colour. A lifted aroma of blackberries with a touch of mocha. The palate is rich and satisfying with wonderful textural mouthfeel, finishing on a note of soft, polished tannins. As with all efforts by Lake Breeze wines, Bullant over delivers in quality, exhibiting vibrant fruit flavours and great palate richness. Best consumed with roast lamb or white meat bangers.
