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 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 loam to clay-loam in texture with moderate to high fertility.
Winemaking
The local Chardonnay selected for this wine is usually harvested a little earlier, to make
this fresh, crisp and fruit driven style. After harvesting, the fruit was crushed and chilled
to the bag presses where gentle press cycles carefully extract the juice. The juice was
then lightly clarified and fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures which
assists in the production tropical fruit flavours and esters. Upon completion of
fermentation, the wine was left on yeast lees for an extended period, imparting a
creamy mouthfeel, prior to filtration and bottling.
Tasting Note
Fresh aromas of white rose and candied lemon lead to a crisp and fruit-driven palate.
Vibrant peach flavours are complemented by creamy tones, all underpinned by a
refreshing line of acidity creating a long, zesty finish.
