More info

Sourced from the vineyards in Padthaway, South Australia, where the soils are sandy loam over clay, formed on old lagoon sediments. These sandy soils lead to poor nutrient and water retention which helps to concentrate the flavours in the fruit. The vines are grown on single wire trellises, ensuring an open canopy. Drip irrigation is used in the vineyards to manage the water supply and reduce evaporation, as water is applied directly above the roots.

The grapes were fermented on their skins at temperatures of between 20°C to 25°C for maximum colour extraction. The wine was made in a fruit-forward style, with a short period in oak.

A dry, full bodied wine best consumed within 2 years, however our Black Shiraz is made to withstand 5-10 years cellaring.

Berton Vineyards

Berton Vineyards was established in 1996 by Bob and Cherie Berton when they purchased a block of land in High Eden, a subregion of the Barossa Valley, South Australia. This idyllic property sits 450m above sea level on gently rolling hills.

In 2005 the decision was made to purchase a winery to process the 100 odd tonnes that was produced at the High Eden Vineyard. In 2005 when the former Southcorp winery in Yenda became available, Bob and Cherie joined with Jamie Bennett, Paul Bartholomaeus and James Ceccato to form Berton Vineyards the company. The winery was purchased and they moved to their new home in November 2005.

This state-of-the-art facility has the capacity to process 20,000 tonnes and enables Berton Vineyards to produce value for money wines together with their premium single vineyard offerings.
