Berton Vineyards Limited Gundagai Shiraz 2017

Rich, intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry and vanilla oak are echoed on the velvety smooth palate, opulent and stylish.

Producer Note - 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. 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 that sit alongside their premium single-vineyard offerings.

Vintage - Abundant winter rainfall was a perfect start to the 2016 growing season. Above-average temperatures resulted in early bud bursts in most varieties. The mild to warm and dry conditions continued with good rainfall in both November and December producing ideal conditions for véraison. February saw the arrival of hot dry weather and with no rainfall or disease pressure; ripening accelerated rapidly resulting in an early harvest for the reds. The 2016 reds are standouts - rich ripe juicy wines with great length and wonderful depth of colour.

Vineyard - The vineyard is situated on rolling hills overlooking the Murrumbidgee River and Jugiong village. At 350 metres above sea level, it is considered a high country in New South Wales. The average annual rainfall here is 706 millimetres, classifying the region as having a continental climate. The terroir is rich quartz speckled through alluvial soils; it nourishes the clone BVRC30 vines, which were planted on their own rootstocks in 1997. Drip irrigation ensures they receive the optimal amount of moisture.

Winemaking - The must was cold-soaked for two days at 12°C. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with two daily pump-overs to ensure optimum extraction of colour and flavour, while imparting structure. Maceration lasted for eight to 10 days and then the young wine was pressed off its skins, clarified and transferred for malolactic fermentation. It was racked off its lees into oak barrels; approximately 70% old oak, of which 35% was American and the remainder French, for a period of 13 months.

 

Tasting Note - A deliciously smooth wine that delivers rich, intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry and subtle hints of toasty oak. Opulent with juicy berried fruits, a unique mineral character and subtle nuances of vanilla and cedar box, the palate is velvety soft with beautifully integrated tannins and a long, elegant finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
