This Cabernet Sauvignon has intense aromas of red berries, sweet blackberry jam, a touch of vanilla oak and eucalyptus characters. Subtle fine velvety tannins marry perfectly with the intense, concentrated palate of ripe blackberries, blackcurrant and well integrated oak to create complexity, depth and a long, balanced finish.
Established by Bob & Cherie Berton in May 1996 with 75 acres of land at 450m above sea level on gently rolling hills in a sub-region of Eden Valley in South Australia, Berton Vineyard has been one of Hallgarten Druitt's most important partners. 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 allows Berton Vineyard to produce value for money wines which sit alongside their premium single vineyard offerings.
All vines have been spur pruned. Vine age is varied. Vines are planted roughly 1.8m apart with 3.6m between the rows to allow machinery access. The Trellis system is generally a single wire cordon.
Made from selected parcels from across South Eastern Australia. Maceration on skins occurs for 4-5 days before fermentation. The juice is then transferred into stainless steel tanks to begin fermentation. Once dry, the wine is transferred into French oak where malolactic fermentation takes place.
Cabernet Sauvignon 100%
The perfect choice for steak & chips or a hearty beef casserole & dumplings.
