Lake Cooper Rhapsody Reserve Shiraz 2020


Dark crimson black, hues of purple and ruby.  It’s a gentle, pretty wine with a delicate mix of florals, sweet red berries and plums with the French Oak brings the smoking, vanillin, musk and spice aroma.  The palate is full-bodied at best with supple, soft tannins – it just feels effortless. Matured for 24 months in French oak. Doubles the intensity and layered richness of Lake Cooper Vineyard Rhapsody Shiraz, the length prodigious. On the way through blackberry, black cherry, licorice and spice all compete for attention, tannins significant but balanced. - Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

Lake Cooper Estate is a small family-owned wine producer that marries time-proven grape-growing and winemaking techniques with the expectations of the modern wine buyer. The estate’s vineyard of around 80 acres is managed with the intent to deliver classic Heathcote regional style and quality, but also to reflect its unique combination of easterly exposure and its deep, ancient and rocky soils.

All decisions in the growing and making of the wine are designed to emphasise the site’s special qualities and to reflect the ambitions of the owner, Liping Wang, to fashion wines of complexity, expression and elegance that age with both charm and grace.

With a new winery on the drawing-board and new plantings to implement over the coming years, Lake Cooper Estate is set to reinforce its presence in the wine industries of Heathcote and Australia. - Information from Lake Cooper Website
