Saddle Creek Semillon Chardonnay 2018 from Berton Vineyards 6 Bottle Case
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. 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 10,000 tonnes and allows Berton Vineyards to produce value-for-money wines which sit alongside his premium single-vineyard offerings.
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.
Loam to clay-loam in texture with moderate to high fertility.
Cold fermented in stainless steel to retain the fruity aromatics. A portion was fermented on oak lees to add complexity and texture.
Saddle Creek Semillon Chardonnay is a delicate blend of herbaceous Semillon and exotic tropical Chardonnay fruit characters with subtle oak complexity balanced by a crisp, fresh finish.
Every day serving suggestion:
Perfect with chicken or seafood with that touch of spice.
