To use the Aussie parlance; we must have a few roos loose in the top paddock letting you guys get your hands on this. Dont get us wrong, we love you
.but this is really good. If the dinghy had sprung a leak in croc infested waters and we needed to lose some weight, youd have to put across a pretty convincing argument before wed throw this wine overboard before you. A peach in every respect: aroma, flavour, quality and price.
Bob and Cherie Berton set up the Berton Vineyard in the High Eden subregion of Barossa in 1996. Due to a lack of water for a couple of years it took a while for the vines to really flourish, but now these hardy little vines are producing some incredible grapes. This wine was one of the first wines that Berton produced and is therefore one that they, and we, are very proud of.
This Chardonnay Viognier is a blend of two well suited varieties. The Chardonnay offers aromas of ripe stone fruit, peach and nectarine, while Viognier contributes a touch of apricot, orange blossom and rose petal that gives an extra dimension to this blend. The palate is full bodied with rich, ripe fruit and spicy vanilla and oaky notes, coupled with just enough acidity to give the wine a long and satisfying finish.
