Berton Vineyards The Black Shiraz 2020

Berton Vineyards are famous for many things but one of their wines exceeds all of those accolades. The Black Shiraz is one of the most represented and recognised wines in the UK restaurant market. Distinguised by it's wonderful pewter label The Black Shiraz has something unique in that it not only looks fabulous but the wine inside the bottle is also wonderful! The Black Shiraz used to be described as an "espresso of a wine" but this was in the early vintages and now it is made in a much more approachable way. Full of spicy, yet soft blackcurrant fruit and still holding it's own at 14% alcohol the wine is actually very easy to drink. It shows the ability of Berton Vineyards when they can make a wine that not only balances fruit and alcohol but also looks great and is at a very reasonable price.

 

Berton Vineyards was created from the drive and passion of it's founder Bob Berton. It was established in 1996 after Berton had finished working for many of Australia's biggest wineries and companies. they are based in the Eden Valley of Australia with 75 acres of land on rolling hills that are perfect for the production of top quality grapes. Bob purchased the Yenda winery and this superb facility allows them to produce superb value for money wines and maintain outstanding quality. Berton isn't all about value for money wine though as they produce some exceptional single varietal wines that showcase the skill and passion of the company.

 

Vinification

The Black Shiraz grapes were sourced from premium areas across South Eastern Australia. Selecting only the darkest and flavoursome fruit. This Shiraz was named because of the deep colour of the juice after crushing and the intensely dark flavours from the resulting wine.

 

Viticulture

Berton vineyards take great care when it comes to vineyard management. All their vines are spur pruned and planted just under 2m apart with 3.6m space between the rows of vine to allow the wineries machinery to harvest the fruit. The vines are of mixed age and are tended with love and attention and this shows in the quality of their wines.

Tasting Note

This Shiraz is strong in flavour with spicy fruit characters and the softest of spice. It's quite unusual for such a high alcohol red wine to be this easy to drink so be careful when opening and pouring.

 

Everyday Serving Suggestion

The Black Shiraz is the perfect choice for rich, spicy and especially peppery dishes, such as steak au poivre, full flavoured game casseroles, chilli con carne or beef sausages.

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.
