Berton Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon High Eden, 2017

Australia

Producer

Berton Vineyards

Grape Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon

I will always remember arriving at Bob’s vineyard in the High Eden some years ago on a bright early spring afternoon, during what movie people term the “golden hour”. It is a remote and rugged place, and on that evening, as the sun went down, the light was amazing. This is the spot where Bob and his wife Cherie chose to plant their very first vineyard. For them this would be a complete change in lifestyle and something that they could do together. The high altitude, windy conditions and ancient podzolic soils all contribute to making wines with a real sense of place. The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has blackcurrants, blueberries and other dark fruit aromas complemented by vanilla and toasty notes. It has a soft juicy palate with mellow oak and fruit flavours developing a fine silky texture with a marked acidity on the finish. A very long and moreish wine. It was matured in French and American oak barrels with 35% new oak for up to 20 months.
