Winemaker 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

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Lake Breeze, Barossa Valley, Barossa, Australia
2006 Bernoota Shiraz/Cabernet
Lake Breeze The Follett family began farming at Langhorne Creek in 1880. The property was established by Arthur John Follett, the winemaker, Greg Folletts great, great, grandfather. Ken and Marlene Follett and sons Roger, Greg and Tim currently manage and run the vineyard and winery. Langhorne Creek Langhorne Creek can easily be discovered on a scenic one hour drive from Adelaide or 45 minutes from Victor Harbor. The township rests between the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges and Lake Alexandrina. Lake Breeze winery lies on the banks of the Bremer River and is surrounded by the majestic River Redgums and overlooks the 75 hectare Follet Family Vineyard. Grapes in this premium wine area have an intense quality due to the location and unique natural influences. Afternoon Lake Breezes create a surprisingly cool climate, which allows for a longer ripening period to enhance flavour retention. The unique annual flooding of the Bremer River deposits deep rich alluvial soil. This is ideal for the production of rich, full bodied red wines and white wines with exceptional flavour. A typical winter flood scene of the Lake Breeze vinyard.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe. Some of the oldest vines in Australia can be found here—in the cooler, wetter Eden Valley sub-region, the Hill of Grace vineyard is home to 140+ year old Shiraz vines.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes where they may benefit from cool breezes, particularly in the Eden Valley.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
