Tasting notes - The Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet has an impenetrable black colour with a vibrant garnet hue. The aromas are powerful and complex with a wealth of fruit ranging from ripe blackcurrant and blackberries with hints of fresh tobacco and chocolate mint. The rich and harmonious palate displays abundant flavours of blackberry and dark cherry, underpinned by fine toasty French oak and defined by a soft yet dense tannin profile.

 

Berton Vineyard Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

intense and generous black fruit aromas with hints of

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 grapes come from two parcels of fruit within the same vineyard, in the prized Terra
Rossa region of Coonawarra. One block is on a slightly more elevated area of the
vineyard, which produces more subtle fruit characters. The warm days are moderated
by off-shore breezes and the rich red loam over free draining limestone soil is the
foundations for the Coonawarra's justified reputation for producing premium quality
Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
Winemaking
The grapes were fermented in rotary vinmatic fermenters for 10 days between 26°C and
30°C on premium French oak until dry. Each parcel of wine was then pressed at 0.5
Baumé through a bag press into stainless steel storage tanks, where the wine went
through a malolactic conversion. The parcels were then clarified by centrifuge and
transferred into new and old French and American oak barrels for 14 months. Only the
best parcels were barrel selected and carefully blended.
