Lake Breeze is located in Langhorne Creek, South Australia, where the Follett family has been farming grapes since the 1880s. The estate is situated on the banks of Lake Alexandrina and the vineyard benefits from the ‘lake breeze’. Winemaker Greg Follett was brought up on the farm but left to study winemaking at Roseworthy before heading to make wine in California and France. He returned to his roots and in 1987 started making wine exclusively from the best 30 per cent of his old vine fruit. He rapidly built an enviable reputation for consistently producing outstanding wines and Lake Breeze is now one of the most awarded boutique wineries in Australia.
The Lake Breeze Bernoota is made from 60% Shiraz and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. After fermentation it is matured in mixture of old and new French/American oak for 15 months.
Rich, voluptous and juicy, with cassis, blueberries, liquorice and fresh black pepper, layered with menthol and eucalyptus notes. A definitive example of this classic blend.
