This wine shows dominant aromas of freshly squeezed lime and grassy notes. The palate is soft with sweet lemon and lime flavours with a long and crisp 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.
Loam to clay-loam in texture with moderate to high fertility.
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.
The parcels were fermented separately in stainless vats. Once fermentation was complete the wines were blended to create a beautifully balanced vibrant wine.
Semillon 50%, Sauvignon Blanc 45%, Chenin Blanc 5%
Serve chilled with sushi or seafood dishes.
