The Follett family have been grape growers in Langhorne Creek for 120 years and winemakers for over 25 years and have rapidly built an enviable reputation for consistently producing outstanding wines. Lake Breeze selects only the best 20% of fruit from the older vines on the property, to create wines with amazing depth of flavour. These wines include the highly acclaimed 'Bernoota' Shiraz Cabernet.

The Cabernet Sauvignon uses fruit produced from 40 year old vines on the Follett family vineyard, situated on the Bremer Flood plain at Langhorne Creek. Traditional open fermentation was employed followed by maturation in French oak barriques for 20 months, prior to bottling. The wine displays a complex array of mint and blackcurrant aromas along with some cedary oak nuances. The concentrated palate has a lovely silky texture, showing chocolate and cassis flavours and a wonderfully long finish. With careful cellaring this wine will age superbly for at least the next 10 years.

95 Points - Huon Hooke - Real Review

Deep red/purple colour, bright and youthful, with a lovely intense cassis, blackberry bouquet, which is hi-fi cabernet and loaded with charm and character. It's young and bold and fresh but already showing complexity. The tannins are ample and supple, and the wine drinks superbly already, although it will be long lived. A glorious cabernet that would look good beside a top Margaret River example. Drink: 2019 to 2037; Price: $27.00; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 95 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
