Rich, ripe concentrated fruit bursting with varietal aromas
of anise, mint and blackcurrant combined with hints of
violets, spice and chocolate.
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.
Durif is a cross between Syrah and little known variety called Peloursin and is sometimes
known as Petite Sirah. This parcel of Durif has been chosen from a single vineyard, the
‘Foleys Corner Vineyard’, which overlooks Griffith in the Riverina, New South Wales. Durif
is well suited to the climate of the Riverina region, which is hot and dry. The vineyard is
on a slope with a westerly aspect and the soil is sandy loam. The vineyard rows face
east to west direction. The vines are on a single wire trellis, spur pruned and drip
irrigated. The grapes are machine harvested once they have reached the optimum
maturity level.
The fruit was destemmed, crushed and fermented with premium untoasted oak
influence in static fermenters for five days, optimising colour stability and a fine tannin
structure. The wine was drained, pressed and stored in stainless steel tanks until
malolactic conversion was complete. It was then filtered onto French oak and matured
for approximately four months, giving a subtle and delicate oak influence. Maturation
lasted a further six months in tank, prior to crossflow filtration and bottling.
Tasting Note
Intense aromas of violets, blackberry and subtle chocolate notes are showcased in this
inky, dark Durif. Notes of blackberry, anise and smoky liquorice fill the concentrated
palate, while the well-integrated mocha-oak influence and tight tannins add
complexity and depth, through to a long, flavoursome finish.
