Berton Vineyard Broken Shackle Classic White

Berton Vineyard Broken Shackle Classic White

Wine: Classic White

Producer: Broken Shackle (Berton Vineyard)

Country: Australia

Region: South Eastern Australia

Vintage: 2020

Style: White

Blend: Semillon 67%, Chardonnay 33%

ABV: 12.5%

Size: 75cl

 

Notes: Classic White is a Semillon, Chardonnay blend that is full of inviting aromas of fresh citrus notes. The palate is crisp with delicious flavours of lime & passion fruit, perfectly balanced to create a soft, dry finish.

 

Producer Info: Berton Vineyards was established in 1996 by Bob & Cherie Berton when they purchased a block of land in High Eden, a subregion of the Barossa Valley, South Australia. This idyllic property sits 450m above sea level on gently rolling hills – except for the Chardonnay block which is anything but gentle!

Bob & Cherie set about planting the first Berton Vineyard cuttings that spring – ten acres of Shiraz & seven acres of Chardonnay – without any permanent water – it wasn’t until the following year, in 1998 when the dam filled that the vines got a decent drink! It was due to these conditions & the seemingly hydrophobic soils that the vines struggled to become established. After a few years where the vines still looked like rootlings, a Swedish friend jokingly called it the bonsai vineyard – the name stuck & later became the name of their premium Shiraz. High Eden has a high annual rainfall so the vines are looking good these days… but they still remember the early days every time a bottle of Bonsai is opened! After the dam was established & water plentiful they went on to plant Cabernet sauvignon & Sauvignon Blanc.

In 2005 the decision was made to purchase a winery to process the 100 odd tonnes that was produced at the High Eden Vineyard. In 2005 when the former Southcorp winery in Yenda became available, Bob & Cherie joined with Jamie Bennett, Paul Bartholomaeus & James Ceccato to form Berton Vineyards the company. The winery was purchased & the guys moved to their new home in November 2005. For the next few months they were kept busy buying up fruit & arranging contact crushing for the 2006 vintage. In January 2006 the first grapes rolled across the weighbridge, & so began the scariest vintage they all experienced! With very few staff they managed to crush & process 13,000 tonnes. Thankfully life at the winery has become easier since then!
