Broken Shackle Classic Rose  

Established by Bob & Cherie Berton in May 1996 with 75 acres. The heart of Berton Vineyards is their own personal plot in a sub-region of Eden Valley in South Australia. This idyllic property sits at 450m above sea level on gently rolling hills - except for the Chardonnay block which is anything but gentle!!
The first vines were planted in that spring - ten acres of Shiraz and seven acres of Chardonnay - but without any permanent water. It was not until 1998, after the new dam was filled, that the vines finally had a decent drink!!!

With all this, the vines struggled through their impressionable years. Lots of love and attention, but the lack of water really retarded their growth, so much so that a Swedish friend jokingly told them that they had planted a bonsai vineyard....the name stuck and later became the name of their premium Shiraz.  With the good rainfall in High Eden, the vines are in great condition these days, but they still remember the early days every time they open a bottle of the Bonsai.
After the dam was full they were able to follow on and plant Cabernet Sauvignon and lastly some Sauvignon Blanc. The Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are now growing happily amongst big white rocks on ancient podsolic soils - which really makes driving trellis posts interesting, but that's another story!!!!

Grapes:    Sangiovese 68.5%, Barbera 16.5%, Shiraz 13% and Other 2%

Taste:      The Broken Shackle is an easy drinking light bodied rosé.  It shows an attractive garnet hue and exhibits lifted aromas of raspberry, cranberry and cherry.  The palate is lively, displaying sweet red berry fruits that are nicely balanced by a fresh acidity.

Alc:           12%

Food Match: This wine is a great accompaniment for pan seared shellfish, barbequed meats or Rogan Josh.

Easy drinking Rose

Perfect for summer parties as it has both the dryness of a serious rose mixed with dollops of sweet raspberries. Good price, too

An excellent Australian Wine, first discovered a few years ago in a tiny restaurant in Chertsey at £20 a bottle..on searching the Net, found Wine Poole selling at a great price. Their delivery time is next to nothing. Both the wine, and distributor are brilliant.
