A fresh, cool-climate Chardonnay which pulls together tropical and citrus fruit flavours with delicate French oak. Aromas of mango, pineapple and white rose are complemented by nuances of lemon spice, vanilla and roasted cashew. Soft and generous on the palate, the creamy mouthfeel is beautifully balanced by a zesty acidity.

More info

Established by Bob and Cherie Berton in May 1996, 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. 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 Chardonnay grapes come from two vineyards in Coonawarra and Padthaway, in the Limestone Coast zone, which is located in the south eastern part of South Australia. The climate is mainly maritime, with coastal breezes creating cooler conditions - ideal for cultivating Chardonnay. The cooler temperatures during the night promote a longer hang time, concentrating the flavours in the grapes while retaining a refreshing acidity. The limestone soils found across the zone are well draining and rich in nutrients. There is a healthy water table beneath the sub-soil which helps to reduce the need for irrigation. The fruit was harvested in the middle of the night under cool conditions, retaining fresh fruit flavours and minimising oxidation.

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.
