The Follett family have been grape growers on the famed Bremer flood plain at Langhorne Creek for over 120 years. It's unusually dry country, with Langhorne Creek only receiving on average 14 inches of rain. At Lake Breeze, the old dry grown vines rely on flooding of the Bremer River to carry them through the dry summer months. Controlled flooding is carried out via a system of floodgates and banks which divert water onto the vineyards.
From here it remains for one or two days until the soil is saturated. It's then released onto a neighbouring vineyard. The soils receive a deposition of silt during the annual flood which ensures that the fertility remains at a high level. The alluvial silty loam soils allow for excellent water holding capacity, therefore supplementary irrigation is not required. A Classic full flavoured example of Langhorne Creek Shiraz Section 54' refers to the section number of the 'home block' of old vines planted around the 'Bernoota' Homestead. This wine was matured for 18 months in a combination of French and American oak.
Totally opaque inky black dark purple colour with a deep dark purple black tinged hue. The nose opens with aromas of ripe blackberries, dark chocolate and liquorice followed by a hint of mint. Rich and velvety the palate has mouthfilling flavours of ripe blackberries and liquorice over some dark choc mint, confectionary and spice. Velvet smooth tannins. Long aftertaste of ripe blackberries, liquorice, choc mint and spicy oak.
Cellar 5-6 years (2019-2020).
