The Black Shiraz 2021 Berton Vineyards


New product

The Black Shiraz, from South Australia's Berton Vineyards, is as muscular and full-blooded as its 'metal label' suggests. Dark in colour and full of liquorice and spicy blackberry flavours, this wine proves that big, concentrated Aussie wines don't need to cost big money. See also the Winemakers Reserve Black Shiraz.

The vines are trained on a trellis system, which is generally a single wire cordon and all vines have been spur pruned. The vine age is varied. Planting is approximately 1.8m apart with 3.6m between the rows, in order to allow machinery access. The grapes were sourced from premium areas across South Eastern Australia and machine harvested during the night. Only the darkest and most flavoursome fruit was selected.

Each parcel of fruit was fermented separately in stainless steel vertical fermenters for five to seven days, at temperatures of between 25°C and 29°C. The wine was then pressed at 1° Baumé and left to ferment until dry. The wine was racked into French oak for malolactic fermentation and clarified via centrifuge. Several different blends were carefully considered over numerous days, culminating in this amazing blend, which is proudly presented in this vintage.

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.
