Metal Label Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Tasting notes

Pale straw with hues of green, this Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of green asparagus, gooseberry and sweet capsicum with underlying tropical notes. The palate displays flavours of gooseberry and passion fruit enhanced with a mouth-watering acidity which adds structure and depth to the long lingering finish.

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

Podsolics - old grey soil over yellow clay. Sandy, slightly sodic

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

Harvested at night, the grapes were gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel vats. The fermentation process was kept at an optimum temperature to retain full varietal characteristics.

Grape

Sauvignon Blanc 100%

Food match
