Established by Bob and Cherie Berton in May 1996, Berton Vineyard is one of Hallgarten's most important partners. The estate covers 30 hectares of land located on gently rolling hills at 450 metres above sea level, in a subregion of Eden Valley in South Australia. 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 enables Berton Vineyard to produce value for money wines which sit alongside their premium single vineyard offerings.
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 soil styles in the vineyards are varied, ranging loam to clayloam in texture with moderate to high fertility, with each terroir adding its own characteristic to the final wine.
These red grapes are harvested early and crushed and destemmed, pressed and fermented like a white grape variety. This is to have minimal skin contact, extracting less colour and tannin. The wine is then fermented at approximately 14°C for two weeks until semi dry and bottled under screwcap to retain freshness.
A pale, salmon pink rosé, with lifted aromas of cranberry, pomegranate and apple blossom. The fine and vibrant palate shows subtle notes of cherry, mulberry and sweet raspberry that are beautifully balanced by a crisp acidity.
