Berton Vineyard Reserve Eden Valley Chardonnay 2019

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
2019 was a challenging climatic season, with warm and dry conditions persisting
throughout the growing season. However, hail and high winds in November resulted
in a very low yielding vintage. The low crop level meant ripening occurred early for
the region, with harvest taking place in the middle of March. The fruit showed
excellent quality, despite the challenging weather conditions during the 2019
vintage.


Vineyard
Eden Valley is one of Australia’s premier cool climate wine regions renowned for its
rugged beauty and distinctive elegant wines. The 2019 Reserve Chardonnay is a
multi-vineyard blend from Eden Valley, with 60% of the fruit from the Berton High Eden
Vineyard, which is approximately 500 metres 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 harvested in the cool of the night to retain freshness. The grapes were
crushed, destemmed and gently pressed; the juice was slowly fermented at cool
temperatures to retain and enhance the varietal characteristics developed in the
vineyard. The wine spent six months on its fine lees in French oak puncheons, adding
complexity and texture before being blended, filtered and bottled.


Tasting Note
This Reserve Chardonnay displays generous aromas of white rose, almond biscotti
and tropical fruit. The palate is well structured with a creamy texture and delivers
flavours of ripe grapefruit and lemon with layers of toasty vanilla and nutmeg adding
complexity, through to a long, creamy finish.
