Rich, full bodied wine with ripe black cherry & blackberry

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 grapes come from the Barossa, in South Australia and the Eden Valley. Situated at
a latitude of 34° South, the Barossa region is made up of rolling hills and valley floors.
The growing season often sees hot, warm weather with temperatures of 35°C, which
can result in vine stress, helping to concentrate the flavours in the berries. The wide
diurnal temperature differences help to retain balancing acidity. Some of the grapes
come from Berton's original vineyard in the Eden Valley, where the climate is cooler. The
vine age is varied, but all vines have been spur pruned and are generally trained on a
single wire cordon trellising system. The soil styles in the vineyards are varied, ranging
from clay, to limestone and sandy soils, with each terroir adding its own characteristic.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place in stainless Ganimede fermenters for eight days between 25 to
28°C. Each parcel was pressed at 0.5 Baumé through a bag press into stainless steel
tanks. Each parcel was clarified via centrifuge, and then transferred to new and used
French and American oak barrels for approximately 12 months. A barrel selection took
place of the best parcels, with blending over several days, ultimately arriving in this rich,
spicy and complex blend.
Tasting Note
The aromas are powerful and complex encapsulating a wealth of ripe black cherries,
blackberries with subtle hints of white pepper and spice. The rich and harmonious
palate delivers soft flavours of plum and cherry notes, underpinned by toasty oak and
velvety chocolate. Silky tannins lead to a long, persistent finish.
