Head Over Heels 2015 Shiraz

A lifetime of passion for winemaking and viticulture and it finally dawned on us that we really love what we make. This Shiraz offers an abundance of expressive aromas, predominantly of blackberry and plums along with toasty sweet oak. A generous and concentrated palate offers flavours of blackberry, black cherry and plum. Complex oak characters of coffee, vanilla and caramel complement the full fruit flavours and create a long rich and satisfying finish.

Metal Label Durif

This parcel of Durif has been chosen from a single vineyard in the Riverina, New South Wales where it thrives in the warm, rich soils. One of the last parcels to be harvested, the ripe fruit gives this wine deep, mouth staining colour and inky dark fruit characters of blackberry, anise and smokey liquorice. Aromas of violets, blackberry, and subtle chocolate are well balanced with hints of french oak.

Berton Vineyards 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Set in High Eden, a region of rugged beauty between Eden Valley and the Barossa, our Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on ancient podsolic soils that offer lots of quartz rock and little other sustenance. Lovely lifted aromas of violets and sweet blackberry jam herald an intense and complex palate of ripe blackberry and cherry. Fine velvet tannins marry with vanillin coffee oak to create complexity and depth that persists to a long and flavorsome finish.

About us

Company details

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 - except for the Chardonnay block which is anything but gentle!!

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 our premium Shiraz. High Eden has a high annual rainfall so the vines are looking good these days... but we still remember the early days every time we crack open a bottle of Bonsai! After the dam was established and water plentiful we went on to plant Cabernet sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc.

In 2005 the decision was made to purchase a winery to process the 1000 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 the guys moved to their new home in November 2005. For the next few months they were kept busy buying up fruit and arranging contact crushing for the 2006 vintage. In January 2006 the first grapes rolled across the weighbridge, and so began the scariest vintage we have all experienced! With very few staff we managed to crush and process 13,000 tonnes. Thankfully life at the winery has become easier since then!
