The Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet is one of Berton Vineyard's most prized wines. The 2019 has an impenetrable black hue with aromas of ripe blackcurrant with hints of tobacco and choc mint. The grapes were fermented in rotary vinmatic fermenters for 10 days between 26°C and 30°C on premium French oak until dry. Each parcel of wine was then pressed at 0.5 Baumé through a bag press into stainless steel storage tanks, where the wine went through malolactic conversion. The parcels were then clarified by centrifuge and transferred into new and old French and American oak barrels for 14 months. Only the best parcels were barrel-selected and carefully blended. Contains minimal sulphur.
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.
