Tasting notes - The Winemakers Reserve Black Shiraz is an extreme example of this Australian Shiraz with deep colour and aromas of blackberry and plum over toasty coffee and spicy oak. The palate is full flavored and intense with rich plum, blueberry, and mocha notes. The tannins are ripe and dense imparting great structure and length to the palate.

Densely hued, this is a rich and fleshy Shiraz with generous
minty blackberry, chocolate and mint flavours over hints
of fresh herbs.
Producer Note
Established by Bob and Cherie Berton in May 1996, Berton Vineyard is one of
Hallgarten's most important partners. 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
Predominantly sourced from the vineyards in Padthaway, South Australia, where the
soils are sandy loam over clay, formed on old lagoon sediments. These sandy soils lead
to poor nutrient and water retention which helps to concentrate the flavours in the fruit.
The vines are grown on single wire trellises, ensuring an open canopy. Drip irrigation is
used in the vineyards to manage the water supply and reduce evaporation, as water is
applied directly above the roots. The fruit was harvested during the cooler nights to
retain freshness.
Winemaking
The parcels of fruit were fermented in stainless steel vertical fermenters for four to six
days at temperatures maintained between 26 to 30°C. The winewas then bag pressed at
1° Baumé and left to ferment until dry. It was then racked onto French oak for
malolactic conversion, before being clarified via centrifuge into stainless steel storage.
25% of the blend was transferred to used French and American oak barrels for
approximately four months’ maturation. Once all parcels were completed, the final
cuvée was carefully blended and prepared for bottling.
Tasting note
The Winemakers Reserve Black Shiraz is a densely hued, rich and fleshy Shiraz with
generous aromas of blackberry and plum over toasty coffee and spicy oak. Full
flavoured and intense, with rich plum, blueberry and mocha notes and ripe tannins
imparting great structure and length.
