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 vines are trained on a trellis system, which is generally a single wire cordon and all vines have been spur pruned. The vine age is varied. Planting is approximately 1.8m apart with 3.6m between the rows, in order to allow machinery access. The grapes were sourced from premium areas across South Eastern Australia and machine harvested during the night. Only the darkest and most flavoursome fruit was selected.

WINEMAKING:
Each parcel of fruit was fermented separately in stainless steel vertical fermenters for five to seven days, at temperatures of between 25°C and 29°C. The wine was then pressed at 1° Baumé and left to ferment until dry. The wine was racked into French oak for malolactic conversion and clarified via centrifuge. Several different blends were carefully considered over numerous days, culminating in this amazing blend, which is proudly presented in this vintage.

TASTING NOTE:
The Black Shiraz is a bold example of this Australian Shiraz with deep colour and aromas of blackberry and plum over toasty vanilla and spicy oak. The palate is full flavoured and intense with rich plum, blueberry and mocha notes. The tannins are ripe and dense giving great structure and length to the palate.

GRAPE:
Shiraz 89%, Durif 11%.
