The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night, crushed, destemmed, chilled, and transferred to the bag presses. After a gentle pressing the juice was clarified before a slow fermentation at temperatures of 14 to 16°C using a selected yeast to optimise aromatics and lush mouthfeel. After fermentation, the wine was left on yeast lees for a short period and stirred regularly. The wine was fermented in stainless steel and after fermentation, the parcels spent a short time sur lie, which helped to build mid-palate weight and imparted a soft, creamy texture.

Fresh aromas of nectarine and peach are complemented by floral nuances of jasmine and orange blossom. Soft and creamy, with refreshing mandarin notes through to a long finish with delicious hints of ginger and spice.

The Viognier grapes come from the Foleys Corner vineyard site, planted by Joe and Frank Sergi – who have been supplying fruit to Berton Vineyards for nearly 20 years. The Riverina is a pioneering wine area established in the late 1800s but began thriving in the post-World War Two era when many Italians migrated and started setting up small vineyards. Back then, many international varieties such as Merlot, Chardonnay, and Shiraz were planted. Viognier was planted in 2006 and remains one of the few plantings of this variety in the area. This vineyard is planted with Ramsey rootstock, on a single wire trellis with vines spaced 1.8m apart, allowing for mechanical harvesting to retain the quality of the fruit. The vines are drip irrigation if required. Berton Vineyards is part of the Sustainable Winegrowers of Australia and promotes sustainable cultivation in its vineyards.
