I had a real treat this weekend. I was invited to the Lake’s Folly 2009 Spring lunch at Muse Restaurant in the Hunter Valley.Winemaker Rodney Kempe and his wife Sandra hosted a nine-course degustation perfectly complementing their wines.
As a late convert to the Lake’s Folly wines I have a lot of catching up to do.
It was Australia’s first boutique winery and only makes two wines – a Cabernet blend and a Chardonnay. Both varietals are award-winning and more remarkably are grown, vintaged and bottled entirely on the Lake’s Folly Estate. We now have a dozen of their 2008 Chardonnay sitting in our cellar!

Muse Restaurant and cafe is run by two food talents – Troy Rhoades-Brown in the kitchen and Megan Rhoades-Brown running the floor. These are two youngsters to watch!
