Producer Note
It is the simplicity of the fruit, the sheer crunchy gluggable vivacity of the liquid, that first established Australia as everyone's favourite vineyard. It's what we aim for in Broken Shackle. Berton Vineyards is one of our longest-standing producers. Having established his own vineyard in 1996 in South Australia's Eden Valley, after a lot of hard yakka Bob Berton purchased a state-of-the-art winery in Yenda, NSW, in 2007 and now sources fruit in the heart of the Riverina.

Vintage
In the vineyard a warm dry summer provided a clean and disease free vintage with great ripening conditions across all regions. Despite some hot days, extended heatwaves did not play a role during the growing season; there was little berry shrivel occurrence in white varieties. The fruit at harvest delivered excellent fruit concentration and varietal typicity.

Vineyard
Sourced from vineyards throughout the Riverina region. 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
As ripeness was achieved the Semillon and Chardonnay grapes were harvested in the cool of the night in retaining freshness. The fruit was crushed, destemmed and chilled to the bag presses. The juice from pressing was clarified before a slow fermentation at cool temperatures of 14-16°C using a carefully selected yeast to optimise varietal expression. Following very little maturation to retain the fresh varietal characters, the Semillon and Chardonnay parcels were blended, stabilised and filtered for bottling.

Tasting Note
This classic, dry blend presents aromas of fresh, tangy lemon and lime with hints of pineapple. A refreshing palate of citrus and pear leads to tropical fruit and a vanilla creaminess. Lovely and clean with a refreshing, crisp finish.
