Easy drinking and exuberantly flavoured Australian red

Producer Note
It is the simplicity of the fruit, the sheer crunchy gluggable vivacity of the liquid, that first
established Australia as everyone's favourite vineyard. It's what we aim for in Broken
Shackle. Berton Vineyards is one of our longest-standing producers. Having established
his own vineyard in 1996 in South Australia's Eden Valley, after a lot of hard yakka Bob
Berton purchased a state-of-the-art winery in Yenda, NSW, in 2007 and now sources fruit
in the heart of the Riverina.

Vineyard
The vine age is varied, but all vines have been spur pruned and are generally trained
on a single wire cordon trellising system. The vines are planted at approximately 1.8
metres apart with 3.6 metres between the rows, to allow machinery access. The soil
styles in the vineyards are varied, with each terroir adding its own characteristic to the
resulting wine.


Winemaking
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel vertical fermenters for four to six days at
temperatures between 26°C and 30°C on French untoasted and toasted oak. When
the young wine reached 1° Baumé, it was pressed via screw press into stainless steel
storage tanks and left to ferment until dry. It was then racked into stainless steel vats
with French oak where it underwent malolactic conversion, resulting in a softer
expression on the palate.


Tasting Note
An easy drinking, full-flavoured Australian red, showing aromas of ripe plum and
redcurrant over toasty mocha and spicy oak. The palate is full flavoured, with notes of
rich plum, blueberry and mocha underpinned by ripe tannins which impart great
structure and length to the palate.
