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 soured from two areas: the Riverland and the Riverina. The
vine age is varied, but all the vines are trained on a double wire cordon trellising system
with drip irrigation. In the Riverland, there are two blocks of Vermentino; the younger
block is hand pruned, while the older block is machine pruned and the vines are
grown in a soil type which is a grey, brown loamy sand. In the Riverina, the vines are all
machine pruned and the vines are grown in a sandy loam soil with a clay subsoil.
Winemaking
Harvest timing was determined in the vineyard by flavour development, sugar and
acidity levels. Harvest took place in the cool of the night to retain fresh fruit flavours and
minimise oxidation before being transported to the winery. After crushing, chilling and
pressing, the free-run juice was lightly clarified before a slow fermentation at
temperatures of 14 to 16°C using carefully selected yeast to optimise varietal
expression. After a short period on yeast lees the wine was blended, stabilised and
filtered for bottling, showcasing its fresh varietal fruit flavours.
Tasting Note
Quintessential Vermentino, this has a delicate pale lime colour with silver hues with
bright aromas of green apple and lemon sherbet. Crisp and fruity palate with lush

through to a deliciously mouthwatering finish.
