Lake Breeze

Lake Breeze 'Bernoota' 2006

Lake Breeze 'Bernoota' 2006 Shiraz Cabernet blend out of Langhorne Creek

Tasting Notes

March 2012
A blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, Lake Breezeā€™s 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. Drinking well now this has the structure and fruit to bring a lot of pleasure over the next 2-3 years.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Advocate Issue #186 Dec 2009
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.
