Producer Note
Established by Bob and Cherie Berton in May 1996 with 30 hectares of land at 450 metres above sea level on gently rolling hills in a sub-region of Eden Valley in South Australia, Berton Vineyard has been one of Hallgarten's most important partners. 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 allows Berton Vineyard to produce value for money wines which sit alongside their premium single vineyard offerings. Vintage
The 2015 vintage in Padthaway was very dry, with lovely ripening conditions, not too hot during the day and cooler nights. Due to the dry conditions, the presence of disease was very low, leading to exceptionally good quality fruit. Vineyard
Sourced from the vineyards in Padthaway, South Australia, where the soils are sandy loam over clay, formed on old lagoon sediments. These sandy soils lead to poor nutrient and water retention which helps to concentrate the flavours in the fruit. The vines are grown on single wire trellises, ensuring an open canopy. Drip irrigation is used in the vineyards to manage the water supply and reduce evaporation, as water is applied directly above the roots. The row spacing is three metres apart, with the vines spaced every two metres, which facilitates machinery access. Winemaking
The grapes were fermented on their skins at temperatures of between 20°C to 25°C for maximum colour extraction. The wine was made in a fruit-forward style, with a short period in oak. The philosophy of this wine is the full, silky and soft fruit speaks for itself and the subtle use of French oak adds complexity. Tasting Note
Selected for its deep colour and intense flavour, this rich, dark red Shiraz has lifted aromas of dark cherry, blackberry and delicately integrated oak. The generous and concentratd palate is velvety with firm tannins and flavours of ripe cherry, plum and mocha over hints of smoky oak. Serving Suggestion
The perfect accompaniment to a rib eye fillet served with roasted vegetables; lamb cutlets with a red wine sauce and red meats served with a rich sauce.
