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.
Vintage
The 2020-21 season was a perfect contrast with the previous one. While summer 2019-
20 was the second hottest on record, 2020-21 was the coolest in 10 years, due to the
influence of a La Niña climate pattern. The cool ripening period led to an elevated
natural acidity and good flavour development. Some whites in the Riverina were picked
slightly early due to rain forecast, resulting in lighter flavours and lower alcohol levels. In
most vineyards, crop size was slightly bigger than 2020 across South Eastern Australia.
Vineyard
The grapes for this wine are sourced from a vineyard in Yenda. The vineyard has
produced consistent quality fruit and this Pinot Grigio is a testament to this. The soils are
sandy loam with clay subsoil, which help to retain moisture during the warmer summer
months and minimise vine water-stress. 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.
Winemaking
The fruit was immediately crushed, destemmed and chilled to drainer and screw-press
to minimise juice contact with the red coloured skins of the grape. The free-run juice
portion was fermented separately at temperatures of 14° to 16°C using a carefully
selected yeast to optimise varietal expression. Finally, the wine was blended and filtered
for bottling as soon as possible, to retain freshness and crisp fruit flavours.
Tasting Note
This Pinot Grigio displays subtle aromas of freshly cut lime and apple. The palate is crisp
and refreshing and reveals flavours of pear, fresh lime and lemon grass which combine
with grapefruit freshness to provide good length and intensity.
