A fruity and fresh style showing tangy passionfruit, juicy lemon and grapefruit leading to a clean and crisp finish.
It is the simplicity of the fruit, the sheer crunchy gluggable vivacity of the liquid, that first established Australia as everyone's favourite vineyard. It's what we aim for in Broken Shackle. Berton Vineyards is one of our longest-standing producers. Having established his own vineyard in 1996 in South Australia's Eden Valley, after a lot of hard yakka Bob Berton purchased a state-of-the-art winery in Yenda, NSW, in 2007 and now sources fruit in the heart of the Riverina.
2017 saw a mild summer and cool nights, resulting in a long ripening period and good fresh fruit flavours in most white varieties. In the vineyard, flavour ripeness came well before the sugar levels were achieved resulting in a lighter style.
Sourced from vineyards throughout the Riverina region. 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.
As ripeness was achieved the Semillon and Chardonnay grapes were harvested in the cool of the night in retaining freshness. The fruit was crushed, destemmed and chilled to the bag presses. The juice from pressing was clarified before a slow fermentation at cool temperatures of 14-16°C using a carefully selected yeast to optimise varietal expression. Following very little maturation to retain the fresh varietal characters, the wine was blended, stabilised and filtered for bottling.
This vibrant blend displays aromas of fresh, tangy passionfruit with a generous lime, citrus palate. Lovely and clean with a refreshing, crisp finish.
Ideally suited to lightly pan fried sand whiting in lemon butter and parsley.
