Berton Vineyards Shiraz the Black 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Berton Vineyards is located in High Eden, a sub-region of Eden Valley, South Australia. The altitude and cool climate provides ideal conditions for the production of high quality fruit. Surrounded by native yacca grass and watched over by the superb blue wren, they grow some of the best Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay in the hills. Australian shiraz has forged an enviable reputation for huge unrestrained flavours that are exemplified by this wine. The Black Shiraz is an extreme example of this style, deep colour, huge palate and high alcohol. The Black Shiraz upholds the tradition with strong blackberry and plum aromas over toast, vanillin and spice. The palate is full flavoured and intense with rich blackberry, plum, blueberry and spicy characters. The tannins are very ripe and dense giving great structure and length to the palate. Perfect with slow cooked rich sauce roasts and strong cheeses!
