Winemakers Reserve Fiano from Berton Vineyards 2020

A lifted floral bouquet, with exotic notes of lychee, pineapple and subtle herbaceous aromas leads to a zesty, textured palate with crisp citrus flavours.

Producer Note - 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 that sit alongside their premium single vineyard offerings. Vintage The 2016 vintage in the Riverina saw a poor start due to high rainfall in late January. As such many varieties were harvested slightly earlier than usual in order to prevent diseases such as botrytis and acid rot from setting in. The Fiano fruit was harvested at 11 degrees Baumé on 21 February; it was clean and fresh, with delicate flavours.

 

Vineyard - Fiano is native to Campania in Italy, but this early ripening and relatively low yielding variety have been really flourishing in the Australian climate for the past few decades. The Fiano grapes for this wine come from the Torino vineyard near the village of Tharbogang in the Riverina, New South Wales. The vines are grown on sandy soil with clay subsoils. As the climate is hot and dry, drip irrigation is required to nourish the vines. The vineyard rows are orientated to face north to south and the vines are trellised on a double wire and spur pruned. The grapes are machine harvested when they have reached the optimum levels of maturity.

 

Winemaking - One of the winemaker's favourites, Fiano was initially used in blending and adding interest to some of the other varieties. After years of outstanding quality, the Winemakers Reserve Fiano has been released. The Fiano grapes were pressed immediately and the must was fermented until it was bone dry in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks. The philosophy with this wine was to retain the fresh, varietal characteristics with little intervention.

 

Tasting Note - A lovely example of the Fiano grape, with its lifted floral bouquet, exotic tropical notes of lychee, pineapple and subtle herbaceous aromas. The zesty, textured palate is perfectly balanced and combines beautifully with the crisp citrus flavours.

 

Serving Suggestion - Pan-seared scallops or prawn cocktail.

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.
