More info

The grapes for this wine are sourced from a single vineyard. The vineyard has produced consistent quality fruit and this Pinot Grigio is a testament to this. The soils are sandy loam with clay subsoil, which help to retain moisture during the warmer summer months and minimise vine water-stress. The vine age is varied, but all vines have been spur pruned and are generally trained on a single wire cordon trellising system. The vines are planted at approximately 1.8 metres apart with 3.6 metres between the rows, to allow machinery access.

The local Pinot Grigio blocks were harvested in the cool of the night to avoid the summer heat and retain the quality of the grapes. The fruit was destemmed and chilled to the bag press, before the juice underwent oxidative treatment to remove any bitter tannins and red colour imparted by the Pinot Grigio grapes’ red skins. Clarification took place immediately selected yeast strains initiated fermentation within 48 hours of the harvest. A slow, cool fermentation was carried out at 14 to 16°C. The wine was rested on its lees for a short period before it was stabilised, blended and filtered, showcasing its fresh and varietal fruit flavours.

Berton Vineyards

Berton Vineyards was established in 1996 by Bob and 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.

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 and Cherie joined with Jamie Bennett, Paul Bartholomaeus and James Ceccato to form Berton Vineyards the company. The winery was purchased and they moved to their new home in November 2005.

This state-of-the-art facility has the capacity to process 20,000 tonnes and enables Berton Vineyards to produce value for money wines together with their premium single vineyard offerings.
