Berton Vineyard Foundstone Rose 2018

A refreshing and full flavoured rose with notes of cherry and sweet raspberry fruit.

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 the vineyard a warm dry summer provided a clean and disease free vintage with great ripening conditions across all regions. Despite some hot days, extended heat waves did not play a role during the growing season. Unfortunately some of the South Australian vineyards suffered from spring frost damage with significant yield loss. However the quality of the fruit at harvest was not affected, which delivered excellent varietal typicity.

Vineyard

The vine age is varied, but all vines have been spur pruned and are generally trained on a single wire cordon trellising system. The vines are planted at approximately 1.8 metres apart with 3.6 metres between the rows, to allow machinery access. The soil styles in the vineyards are varied, ranging loam to clayloam in texture with moderate to high fertility, with each terroir adding its own characteristic to the final wine.

Winemaking

Made predominantly from a blend of Riverina Barbera and Coonawarra Cabernet and Shiraz. The three parcels were vinified slightly differently and fermented separately. The Barbera was picked and pressed immediately to minimise colour pick up; while the Coonawarra material was drained off the reds prior to crushing. The parcels were fermented at 14 to 16°C, filtered immediately and stored in stainless steel tanks until bottling, in order to retain the vibrancy of fruit.

Tasting Note

Pale salmon in colour with bronze hues this rosé displays aromas of raspberry and strawberry with subtle nuances of rose petal. Fruit flavours of pomegranate, pink-lady apple and cranberry all feature in a palate driven by lively acidity, through to a refreshing finish.
