Established by Bob & Cherie Berton in May 1996 with 75 acres of land at 450m above sea level on gently rolling hills in a sub-region of Eden Valley in South Australia All Grapes are machine harvested and tested for ripeness which is aimed at 14-14.5 baume. Cropping level is around 6-7 tonnes/acre with a mixture of morning and day harvest. Grapes are then crushed and inoculated with selected yeast strains. The fermentation is carried out at 25-28 degrees and a rack and return is carried out every 3 hours. When the ferment is dry the wine is then pressed off skins and transferred to a staineless steel tank and oaked using planks. After sufficient time on oak the wine is filtered and blended and prepared for bottling.
