Foundstone Rose 2015

Tasting notes

This rose has lifted aromas of cranberry, pomegranate and apple blossom. The fine and vibrant palate shows notes of cherry, mulberry and sweet raspberry that are beautifully balanced by a crisp acidity.

Producer note

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.

Soil

Loam to clay-loam in texture with moderate to high fertility.

Viticulture

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.

Vinification

These red grapes are harvested early and crushed and destemmed, pressed and fermented like a white grape variety. This is to have minimal skin contact, extracting less colour and tannin. The wine is then fermented at about 14 degrees for about 2 weeks until semi dry and bottled under screwcap to retain freshness.

Grape

Shiraz 100%

Food match

Enjoy with antipasto, barbecued marinated prawns or simply as an aperitif.
