Berton Bonsai Shiraz 2010
- In stock
Set in High Eden, a region of rugged beauty between Eden Valley and the Barossa. This Shiraz is grown on ancient podsolic soils that offer lots of quartz rock and little other sustenance. After five years of heroic effort the vines still looked like rootlings so Berton Vineyards started calling it their Bonsai Vineyard. This Shiraz has lifted aromas of plums and coffee vanillin oak signalling the intensely concentrated ripe plum, black cherry and spicy white pepper on the palate. The flavours combine with the sweet toasty oak and soft tannins to create a beautiful layering of taste and texture that continues to a long lingering finish.Perfect with roast lamb, rich braised dishes or full flavoured cheese! This wine has been made to drink now but will cellar for 10 years.
