The Winery

Berton Vineyards

Bob and Cherie set about planting the first Berton Vineyard cuttings that spring - ten acres of Shiraz and 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 and the seemingly hydrophobic podsolic 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 - and the name stuck and 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 they crack open a bottle of Bonsai! After the dam was established and water plentiful they went on to plant Cabernet sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc.

4/5

We drank the whole bottle at once with friends and a good conversation.
Red with violet edges. It has a strong caramel smell. As I'm not really a fan of red wine, I noticed a plane taste on the palate.
The combination of this Berton Vineyards Foundstone South Eastern Australia Merlot and meat did not seem appropriate, best pair it with fish.
