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

Possibly Berton Vineyards most popular wine. Full of spicy, yet soft blackcurrant fruit and still holding it's own at 14% alcohol, the wine is actually very approachable. The winemakers source the darkest and most flavoursome Shiraz grapes from premium areas across South Eastern Australia and make a wine that balances fruit and alcohol, but also looks great and is a reasonable price.
Strong, purple black and intense (hence the name) yet surprisingly soft and easy drinking for such a high alcohol wine - just how Aussie Shiraz should be!
