Berton Vineyard The Bonsai High Eden, 2017

Australia

Producer

Berton Vineyards

Grape Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Bonsai is the very first vineyard planted by Bob and Cherie by their own hands. It is named so as when first planted they had no water for irrigation. Having toiled so hard, the couple then watched the young vines struggling to survive with the high winds and no water. After some years, the vines were still spindly and dwarfed, leading to one visiting wine professional naming it The Bonsai vineyard. Today the vines look fit and healthy. A dam has been built and irrigation installed. The Bonsai 2017 is dense in colour with ripe dark fruits, sweet cherries and vanilla toast aromas. Significant rainfall events that occurred in other parts of South Australia in 2017 largely missed the High Eden region. This wine is concentrated on the palate with powerful fruit and savoury oak notes. Another very moreish wine with great depth and a long smoky, bitter fruit and dark chocolate finish. It has a fine texture with lots of tannin. After maturation in new and old French and American oak barrels for over 12 months, the best barrels were selected to produce the final wine.
