Berton Vineyard Bonsai Shiraz Cabernet High Eden 2019

An intense, opulent and full flavoured Shiraz blend with
cassis, vanilla and mint chocolate notes culminating in a
rich finish.
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
The vineyard was planted in 1996, with vines planted 1.5m apart and with 3.3m
between the rows. A single wire trellis system is used which ensures good ventilation
and minimal disease. The canopy is typically quite sparse allowing maximum sunlight
penetration. The vines are spur pruned and grown in "Podsolics" an old grey soil formed
over yellow clay, which is sandy and slightly sodic.
Winemaking
The Shiraz was picked in late April; the grapes were destemmed and crushed into 15
tonne static fermenters where it was inoculated with carefully selected yeast.
Fermentation continued for six days between 22°C and 28°C on premium French
untoasted and toasted oak. The wine was then pressed at 0.5 Baumé into stainless
steel storage tanks and left to ferment until dry. It was then racked into stainless steel
storage for malolactic conversion. Once complete, each parcel was clarified via
centrifuge and transferred into new and used French and American oak barrels for 12
months. The best barrels were carefully selected and blended prior to bottling.
Tasting Note
The Bonsai impresses with impenetrable violet hues and delivers intense aromas of
blueberry, plum, liquorice and toasty oak. Subtle fine tannins marry perfectly with the
soft, elegant palate of dark cherry, plum and white pepper.
