Berton Vineyard Limited Shiraz Heathcote, 2017

Australia

Producer

Berton Vineyards

Grape Variety

Shiraz

The Heathcote region in Central Victoria is prized for its deep red Cambrian soils resulting from the erosion of the Mount Camel range. These soils have good water holding capacity. Shiraz is the dominant grape and was the standout variety in 2017 in the region. Heathcote’s location off the northern fringe of the Great Dividing Range means it is a warm Mediterranean climate, but slightly cooler than neighbouring regions. In this case, grapes came from Shiraz vines planted to the north of the region at Colbinabbin, 30 kilometres from Heathcote town. Smoky aromas mingle with ripe dark fruits, cooked fruits, vanilla and patisserie smells, giving an overall mellow impression. On the palate it is smooth and lush with a refreshing acidity and blackcurrant finish. After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured with a combination of French and American oak.
