Tasting notes - A deliciously smooth wine that delivers rich, intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and subtle hints of toasty oak. Opulent with juicy berried fruits, a unique mineral character, and subtle nuances of vanilla and cedar box, the palate is velvety soft with beautifully integrated tannins and a long, elegant finish. 

 

Berton Vineyard Gundagai Shiraz 2017

Rich, intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry and
vanilla oak are echoed on the velvety smooth palate.
Opulent and stylish.
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.
Vineyard
The vineyard is situated on rolling hills overlooking the Murrumbidgee River and Jugiong
village. At 350 metres above sea level, it is considered a high country in New South Wales.
The average annual rainfall here is 706 millimetres, classifying the region as having a
continental climate. The terroir is rich in quartz speckled through alluvial soils; it nourishes
the clone BVRC30 vines, which were planted on their own rootstocks in 1997. Drip
irrigation ensures they receive the optimal amount of moisture.
Winemaking
The must was cold soaked for two days at 12°C. Fermentation took place in stainless
steel tanks with two daily pump-overs to ensure optimum extraction of colour and
flavour, while imparting structure. Maceration lasted for eight to 10 days and then the
young wine was pressed off its skins, clarified and transferred for malolactic conversion.
It was racked off its lees into oak barrels; approximately 70% old oak, of which 35% was
American and the remainder French, for a period of 13 months.
Tasting Note
A deliciously smooth wine which delivers rich, intense aromas of blackberry, black
cherry and subtle hints of toasty oak. Opulent, with juicy berried fruits, a defined mineral
character and subtle nuances of vanilla and cedar box, the palate is velvety soft with
beautifully integrated tannins and a long, elegant finish.
