Producer Note
Established by Bob and Cherie Berton in May 1996, Berton Vineyard is one of
Hallgarten's most important partners. 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.
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 mainly loam to clay-loam in texture, with moderate to high
fertility.
Winemaking
The parcels were fermented separately in stainless steel potters for four to six days at
controlled temperatures of between 26 to 30°C, with regular pump overs where it was
influenced by premium French toasted and untoasted oak. The wine was then pressed
off its skins at 1° Baumé and transferred to stainless steel tanks where it received further
oak contact. The wine went through malolactic conversion and was then clarified. The
best parcels were selected and blended.
Tasting Note
This Shiraz offers an abundance of expressive aromas, predominantly blackberry and
plum along with toasty sweet oak. The generous and concentrated palate offers rich
black fruits complemented by notes of coffee, vanilla and caramel through to a long,
rich and satisfying finish.
