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

In 2017, the High Eden vineyard saw a wet winter followed by cool summer conditions, which provided the vines with good access to water and a long ripening period. This combination resulted in a great season for the Eden Valley. Cool nights allowed excellent flavour development in the grapes resulting in wines with concentrated flavours and crisp acidity.

Vineyard

Eden Valley is one of Australia’s premier cool climate wine regions renowned for its rugged beauty and distinctive elegant wines. The 2016 Reserve Chardonnay is a multi-vineyard blend from Eden Valley, with 60% of the fruit from the Berton High Eden Vineyard, which is approximately 500m above sea level. 40% of the fruit came from vineyards are a little lower in valley at approximately 400 metres elevation. The Berton High Eden vineyard possesses light brown soil, made up of sandy loam and a large amount of quartz gravel and rock fragments. Other Eden Valley vineyards range from grey to brown in colour, sand and clay loams with ironstone and quartz fragments.

Winemaking

The fruit was mechanically harvested at night to retain freshness. The grapes were gently pressed and the juice was slowly fermented at controlled temperatures of 14 to 16°C. Approximately 50% was transferred to French oak puncheons where it spent three months on yeast lees, with regular stirring and further six months maturation. The remaining 50% underwent similar lees treatment on premium oak staves in tank.

Tasting Note

This Reserve Chardonnay displays generous aromas of freshly cut peach complemented by notes of nectarine, toasted almonds and a hint of vanilla. The palate is well structured with a creamy texture and delivers flavours of peach, pear and sweet grapefruit with toasted almond and orange zest through to a crisp, persistent finish.

Serving Suggestion

Enjoy chilled with a seafood platter or creamy chicken pasta dishes.
