PRODUCER NOTE
It is the simplicity of the fruit, the sheer crunchy gluggable vivacity of the liquid, that first established Australia as everyone’s favourite vineyard. It’s what we aim for in Broken Shackle. Berton Vineyards is one of our longest-standing producers. Having established his own vineyard in 1996 in South Australia’s Eden Valley, after a lot of hard yakka Bob Berton purchased a state-of-the-art winery in Yenda, NSW, in 2007 and now sources fruit in the heart of the Riverina.

VINTAGE
A dry start to the season continued right through to harvest in most regions which resulted in little to no disease issues in the vineyard. Early season temperatures were mild until January saw extreme heat waves for most of South East Australia and supplementary water was crucial in maintaining vine health and crop protection. Despite the season’s challenges, the wine quality in 2019 is excellent.

VINEYARD
Sourced from vineyards throughout the Riverina region. The vine age is varied, but all vines have been spur pruned and are generally trained on a single wire cordon trellising system. The vines are planted at approximately 1.8 metres apart with 3.6 metres between the rows, to allow machinery access.

WINEMAKING
As ripeness was achieved the Semillon and Chardonnay grapes were harvested in the cool of the night in retaining freshness. The fruit was crushed, destemmed, chilled and pressed immediately. The juice from pressing was clarified before a slow fermentation at cool temperatures of 14-16°C using a carefully selected yeast to optimise varietal expression. Following very little maturation to retain the fresh varietal characters, the Semillon and Chardonnay parcels were blended, stabilised and filtered for bottling.

TASTING NOTE
This Semillon Chardonnay is full of inviting aromas of fresh citrus notes. The palate is crisp with delicious flavours of lime and passion fruit, perfectly balanced to create a soft, dry finish.

GRAPE
Semillon 67%, Chardonnay 33%.
