Tasting notes - The Black Shiraz is a bold example of this Australian Shiraz with deep colour and aromas of blackberry and plum over toasty vanilla and spicy oak.

Berton Vineyard Metal Label The Black Shiraz 2021

A fruit bomb of a wine bursting with Morello cherry fruit
and minty blueberry and mocha aromas.
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 vines are trained on a trellis system, which is generally a single wire cordon and all
vines have been spur pruned. The vine age is varied. Planting is approximately 1.8m
apart with 3.6m between the rows, in order to allow machinery access. The grapes
were sourced from premium areas across South Eastern Australia and machine
harvested during the night. Only the darkest and most flavoursome fruit was selected.
Winemaking
Each parcel of fruit was fermented separately in stainless steel vertical fermenters for five
to seven days, at temperatures of between 25°C and 29°C. The wine was then pressed
at 1° Baumé and left to ferment until dry. The wine was racked into French oak for
malolactic conversion and clarified via centrifuge. Several different blends were
carefully considered over numerous days, culminating in this amazing blend, which is
proudly presented in this vintage.
