Berton Vineyards High Eden Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 6 bottle pack
The High Eden Cabernet Sauvignon from Berton Vineyards is the ultimate expression of Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. Full of complex black fruit flavours and not a hint of green pepper anywhere. This wine is delightful when it's served decanted with roast beef or marinated veal. If you can't decant then just leave it in the glass before attacking the lovely flavours to get the best from this wine.
Established by Bob and Cherie Berton in May 1996 with 30 hectares of land at 450m above sea level on gently rolling hills in a sub-region 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 allows Berton Vineyard to produce value for money wines which sit alongside their premium single vineyard offerings.
Vines are planted 1.5m apart with 3.3m between the rows. The Trellising system is a single wire Trellis which ensures good ventilation and minimal disease. The canopy is typically quite sparse allowing maximum sunlight penetration. Vines are spur pruned.
The grapes were crushed and de-stemmed in a small hand crusher and then transferred into a two tonne vat. Fermentation and hand plunging took place over the next three weeks before pressing in a traditional basket press. The pressings were put back into stainless steel tanks and the wine settled on its lees for three weeks before being racked into four American oak barrels. The wine finished malolactic fermentation in October and was aged for another 12 months before being bottled.
Lovely lifted aromas of violets and sweet blackberry jam on the nose are followed by an intense and complex palate of ripe blackberry and cherry fruit with vanilla & coffee notes. Fine velvety tannins marry to create a softand structured palate that has a long, flavoursome finish.
Perfect with roast beef or marinated veal.
