Tasting notes - A fresh Chardonnay pulling together thirst-quenching citrus flavours with delicate French oak. The bouquet is filled with lifted aromas of grapefruit and pineapple; while flavours of lemon, mandarin, and honeydew melon immerse the palate. The wine finishes soft and creamy with zesty acidity and lingering hints of vanilla.

Berton Vineyard Metal Label Riverina Classic Chardonnay 2021

Lifted tropical fruit aromas, with hints of lime and
grapefruit are complemented by subtle oak nuances.
Beautifully balanced with a creamy texture.
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.
Vineyard
The majority of the fruit was grown by the Orton family in Padthaway, South Australia.
The vineyard was planted from 2001 to 2002, with an east to west orientation, providing
just the right amount of sun exposure on the vines. 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 vineyard to
manage the water supply and reduce evaporation, as water is applied directly above
the roots. A proportion came from a vineyard in Coonawarra, adding complexity to the
blend.
Winemaking
The fruit from each vineyard was vinified separately. The juice was inoculated and
fermented in stainless steel at 14°C, for approximately 14 days on French oak. The
wines were then matured on yeast lees for four weeks with a percentage in French oak
hogshead barrels. The blending of the wines occurred before bottling, achieving a fresh
and fruit-driven style with light oak nuances.
