This wine is pale lemon in colour and bursting with tropical fruit aromas, which follow through on to the palate. It is so refreshing with its vibrant acidity that one glass is never enough!
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.
Podsolics - old grey soil over yellow clay. Sandy, slightly sodic
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.
This Vermentino is made in a traditional style, no skin contact, cold settled, fermented under strict cool temperatures, then clarified and bottled to retain its freshness.
Vermentino 91%, Fiano 5%, Sauvignon Blanc 2%, Semillon 2%
