Lake Breeze Langhorne Creek Bernoota Shiraz Cabernet 2014
Click here for the 2015 Vintage
"It’s 60% shiraz and 40% cabernet and it couldn’t be more Aussie feeling if it was an Akubra-wearing dingo eating a kangaroo pie on a bush walk.
Generations of Follett family have trod the Langhorne Creek soil growing grapes. Wonderful stuff. It’s a wonderful wine, ludicrous at the price, should last a couple of decades in cellar too. Indeed, it feels primed for a long life, rippling with fine tannin, bright in perky acidity, fine and elegant in the palate.
There’s loads of black olive, salt bush, dark berries, ripe plums and suggestions of eucalyptus, but the key thing is just how well it drinks - a glorious, supple flow, medium weight and superbly structured. It sticks to the gums but sighs over the tongue. Strewth, this is good."
94 Points - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, Jan 2017, Drink: 2017 - 2035
The Follett family has been growing grapes at Langhorne Creek for over 120 years, where the deep alluvial soils of the Bremer flood plain coupled with cooling 'lake breezes' provide ideal conditions for premium grape production.
This classic Australian blend uses a combination of old vine fruit and dedicated winemaking to produce a rich, velvety textured wine which can be enjoyed now, or cellared with confidence over the next 8-10 years.
The wine was fermented on skins in open static fermenters for 7-10 days, followed by maturation for 20 months in American and French oak barriques. Winery Notes
