An intense, opulent and full flavoured Shiraz blend with
dark fruit, vanilla and mint chocolate notes culminating
in a soft and juicy finish.
Producer Note
Established by Bob and Cherie Berton in May 1996. The estate covers 30 hectares of land located
on gently rolling hills at 450 metres above sea level, in a subregion of Eden Valley in
South Australia. The superb Reserve Shiraz and Reserve Chardonnay wines are still
sourced from this plot. In 2007, Bob purchased the Yenda winery in the heart of the
Riverina. This state-of- the-art facility has the capacity to process 20,000 tonnes and
enables Berton Vineyard to produce value for money wines which sit alongside their
premium single vineyard offerings.
Vintage
Winter rainfall was good, but the driest spring since 2006 was followed by only one
rainfall event in early January, combined with January's lowest mean maximum
temperature for 23 years. February was the opposite, with the highest mean
maximum temperature since 2007. A combination of circumstances saw some very
high Baumé levels. Temperatures then fell sharply, with March being average. As a
result, the reds are strongly coloured and richly flavoured.
Vineyard
The vineyard was planted in 1996, with vines planted 1.5m apart and with 3.3m
between the rows. A single wire trellis system is used which ensures good ventilation
and minimal disease. The canopy is typically quite sparse allowing maximum sunlight
penetration. The vines are spur pruned and grown in "Podsolics" an old grey soil
formed over yellow clay, which is sandy and slightly sodic.
Winemaking
The grapes were fermented in stainless static fermenters for approximately eight days
at temperatures of between 22°C and 28°C on premium French untoasted and
toasted oak. The grapes were pressed at 0.5 Baumé into stainless steel tanks tanks
and fermented through to dryness. The wine then went through a malolactic
fermentation and each parcel was clarified via centrifuge. Each parcel was then put
into new and used French oak barrels for approximately 20 months. The best parcels
of each of the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignons were carefully barrel selected.
Several different blends were considered before culminating in this final blend, which
is proudly presented in this vintage.
Tasting Note
This Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon has intense aromas displaying blackcurrant, plum
coupled with hints of nutmeg, caramel and a touch of vanilla oak. Subtle fine
tannins marry perfectly with the intense concentrated palate of ripe blackberries,
black cherry, spicy white pepper and well integrated oak.
Serving Suggestion
Perfect with roast beef, marinated veal or full-flavoured cheeses.
