A fruity and fresh style showing tangy passionfruit, juicy lemon and grapefruit leading to a clean and crisp finish.
It is the simplicity of the fruit, the sheer crunchy gluggable vivacity of the liquid, that first established Australia as everyone's favourite vineyard. It's what we aim for in Broken Shackle. Berton Vineyards is one of our longest-standing producers. Having established his own vineyard in 1996 in South Australia's Eden Valley, after a lot of hard yakka Bob Berton purchased a state-of-the-art winery in Yenda, NSW, in 2007 and now sources fruit in the heart of the Riverina.
Sourced from vineyards throughout the Riverina region. The vine age is varied, but all vines have been spur pruned and are generally trained on a single wire cordon trellising system. The vines are planted at approximately 1.8 metres apart with 3.6 metres between the rows, to allow machinery access.
The grapes were fermented in temperature controlled tanks to retain the fresh and fruity characteristics of the varieties in the blend. This wine is unoaked in style, highlighting the bright aromatics.
Wonderfully vibrant and generous, showing tangy passionfruit, juicy citrus fruit and supple honeydew melon that leads to a clean fresh finish.
Ideally suited to lightly pan fried sand whiting in lemon butter and parsley.
Semillon 49%, Chardonnay 40%, Chenin Blanc 10%, Verdelho 1%
The service was excellent and staff very helpful re delivery.
