Winemaker's Notes

Lake Breezes Bernoota is a lovely example of a classic Aussie blend. The nose is spicy and lifted on opening with notes of savory cedar touched up with light mint underpinning flowing into red cassis and richer blackberry fruit aromatically. The palate is medium fuller bodied and sleek, with a streak of lively acidity giving brightness to the fruit flavors that mirror the nose. Finer tuned tannins help firm up the long finish with a savory cast that works nicely with the vibrant fruit.

Blend: 60% Shiraz and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Bernoota is a glass-coating opaque purple. Its aromatics display wood smoke, pepper, violets, black currant, and blueberry. On the palate it has some complexity, good depth, a bit of structure, and a smooth texture. This medium-long wine will evolve for 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now. "

Nice nose on first aerated pour. I would say to decant or aerate this wine to open it up.Dark fruit on the nose with hints of pencil lead. Dark berry and soft tannins on the first sip. Give this wine a little time before sipping and it will not disappoint. I would drink now through 2013.
