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 grapes come from Riverina vineyards surrounding the townships of Griffith and
Yenda. The vines are grown in a warm continental climate with mostly dry ripening
periods, which provide excellent conditions for grape cultivation. Deep, fertile loam soils
provide a great base for healthy vines and grapes with abundance of flavour. Efficient
irrigation methods supply water from the Murrumbidgee River in gravity fed channel
systems. The Viognier blocks are set up on a double wire trellis, allowing good air
penetration and bunch distribution, whilst providing protection from sunburn. This
system also allows good machinery and manual access during pruning, spraying and
harvest.
Winemaking
As ripeness was achieved the Riverina Viognier grapes were harvested in the cool of
the night to retain freshness and minimise oxidation. The fruit was crushed, destemmed
and chilled to the bag presses. After a gentle pressing the juice was clarified before a
slow fermentation at cool temperatures of 14 to 16°C using a carefully selected yeast to
optimise lush, varietal flavours. The wine then underwent six to eight weeks' maturation
on yeast lees which built mid palate weight and optimised the expression of soft
creamy notes. The Viognier was then blended, filtered and bottled.
Tasting  Note
Fresh and lifted aromas of peach are complemented by floral nuances of jasmine and
orange blossom. Flavours intensify on the palate with soft fleshy mandarin and
marmalade fruit coming to the fore. The wine finishes with moderate length and hints of
apple and spice.
