The $28 South Australian chardonnay awarded gold at prestigious wine show

Lake Breeze Wines’ 2023 Reserve Chardonnay was awarded the gold medal at the recent Langhorne Creek Wine Show.

Lake Breeze Wines 2023 Reserve Chardonnay was awarded the gold medal for best sparkling wine, white wine or rosé trophy at the recent Langhorne Creek Wine Show.

Annually in May, wines from the region undergo benchmarking and assessment against international standards at the Langhorne Creek Wine Show. Prized trophies are bestowed upon the top-performing wines, spanning various styles and categories.

The awards ceremony, held on Friday the 17th, brought together 200 grape growers, winemakers, trade representatives, suppliers, and winery staff for a regional celebration marking the conclusion of the vintage season. The event took place in a marquee set against the picturesque lawns of Bleasdale Vineyards, providing a fitting backdrop for the occasion.

Chair of Judges Sue Bell presided over the proceedings alongside esteemed wine writer Dave Brookes and Riley Harrison from Harrison Wine, accompanied by associate judges Sam Rowlands, Tyler Follett, and Jordan McAnaney for the 2024 judging panel.

For the 2023 Reserve Chardonnay, the grapes were carefully selected from the property’s finest chardonnay block and delicately pressed before undergoing barrel fermentation and ageing in French oak barrels.

The uniquely cool maritime climate of Langhorne Creek fosters a slow, even ripening process, preserving fresh natural acidity.

No stranger to the wine game, Lake Breeze have been wine growers in Langhorne Creek for over 130 years, enjoying remarkable achievements spanning the past three decades, the company has amassed an impressive tally of 60 trophies and over 180 gold medals at prominent Australian wine exhibitions.

“Great to receive a sneaky trophy at todays 2024 Langhorne Creek Wine Show for our 2023 Reserve Chardonnay!,” the Lake Breeze Wine team celebrated on Facebook earlier this month.

With a stunning cellar door on site, Lake Breeze Wines is an easy must-stop for anyone travelling through the state’s south east and after winning gold, you would be silly not to pick up a bottle of the 2023 Reserve Chardonnay!
