- Closure: Stelvin
The name ‘Bernoota’ was the original name given to the homestead on the Lake Breeze property – it is Aboriginal for ‘camp among the gum trees’. The 2014 Bernoota is a silky blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in a combination of American and French oak barriques for 20 months.
Elegance meets opulence in this seamless integration of fruit and tannin.
Totally opaque black dark red colour with a deep dark red hue. Lifted aromas of blackberries and liquorice are overlaid by hints of choc mint with following vanillin cedar and spice. Rich and velvety in texture, generous flavours of blackberry, blackcurrant and liquorice glide effortlessly across the medium to full bodied palate with traces of choc mint, vanillin cedar and spice also present. Velvet smooth, seamlessly integrated tannins with an elegant opulence to the fruit. Finishes long with an aftertaste of blackberries, blackcurrant, liquorice, subtle choc mint and spicy vanillin cedar.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
It’s 60% shiraz and 40% cabernet and it couldn’t be more Aussie feeling if it was an Akubra-wearing dingo eating a kangaroo pie on a bush walk. Generations of Follett family have trod the Langhorne Creek soil growing grapes. Wonderful stuff.
It’s a wonderful wine, ludicrous at the price, should last a couple of decades in cellar too. Indeed, it feels primed for a long life, rippling with fine tannin, bright in perky acidity, fine and elegant in the palate. There’s loads of black olive, salt bush, dark berries, ripe plums and suggestions of eucalyptus, but the key thing is just how well it drinks – a glorious, supple flow, medium weight and superbly structured. It sticks to the gums but sighs over the tongue. Strewth, this is good. Drink 2017-2035.
