Producer: Berton VineyardGrape Varieties: Chardonnay 85%, Semillon 15%Alcohol by Volume: 13%Country: Australia
This Reserve Chardonnay has generous aromas of white peach, beautifully balanced by spicy oak with toasty undertones of vanilla and mocha. A rich and toasty palate shows pineapple and peach fruit with hints of cinnamon, which lingers to create a lovely wine with a long and persistent 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.
Mechanically harvested at night. The grapes were de-stemmed, crushed, pressed via a bag press and cold settled in stainless steel tanks for 48 hours. The juice was then fermented in stainless steel at 13 degrees. At around 6 baume the ferment was split and 40% went to new French oak hogshead barrels, the balanceremained in stainless steel. After fermentation, the wine remained on its lees for three months before being racked, filtered and then blended. The barrel portion was kept on its lees for six months before it was racked and filtered for blending.
