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 2016 vintage in the Riverina did not get off to a great start as due to high rainfall in late January. As such the harvest took place earlier than usual, in order to prevent diseases from setting in. The fruit was harvested at 10 Baume, clean and fresh with delicate flavours. The Riverland had a much better start to vintage without the rain the Riverina had and therefore the fruit was able to ripen to 12 Baume, which is optimal for this variety. Vineyard
The grapes for this wine are soured from two areas: the Riverland and the Riverina. The vine age is varied, but all the vines are trained on a double wire cordon trellising system with drip irrigation. In the Riverland, there are two blocks of Vermentino; the younger block is hand pruned, while the older block is machine pruned and the vines are grown in a soil type which is a grey, brown loamy sand. In the Riverina, the vines are all machine pruned and the vines are grown in a sandy loam soil with a clay subsoil. Winemaking
The grapes from the Riverland and Riverina regions were vinified separately. The fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the freshness and preserve the varietal characteristics. The wine was then blended prior to being bottled. Tasting Note
Quintessential Vermentino with delicate citrus and pear leading to a palate which is bursting with tropical fruit, lychee and kiwi fruits. Vibrant and refreshing with its zesty acidity, depth of flavour and a deliciously mouthwatering finish. Serving Suggestion
Enjoy chilled as a refreshing apéritif, or with light seafood dishes such as Tempura prawns, or delicately flavoured white fish dishes.
