Berton Vineyard’s Metal Label Range.
Here at Cellier we’re happy to have some of the best Australian wines in our range. This includes the Metal Label range from Berton Vineyards. These bottles are excellent in terms of quality and taste, with a premium look about them thanks to the fabulous yet understated metal label on the front.
The range we carry consists of 5 whites; Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Vermentino, Chardonnay and Moscato Frizzante and 2 reds; the Black Shiraz and the Cabernet Sauvignon. Every single one of them has been awarded and received raving reviews.
Highly esteemed in the old world, Viognier is quickly forging a reputation in Australia as a complex, full bodied and flavoursome alternative to Chardonnay. This alluring Viognier displays lifted aromas of apricot, orange blossom and peach. Fresh flavours of citrus zest and tropical fruits fill the palate and linger to create a long finish. Enjoy with friends over a plate of gourmet fish and chips or creamy pasta dishes. According to the review by Jim McMahon- “The white Viognier is a vibrant green straw colour which gives way to a nose of orange blossoms, white peach and apricot flavours. The wine displays a nice textural, mouth-feel with vibrant acidity on a dry finish.”
Pale straw with hues of green, this Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of green asparagus, gooseberry and fruit salad with underlying tropical notes. The palate displays crisp snow pea with hints of passionfruit and mouthwatering acidity which adds structure and depth to the long lingering finish. Enjoy with friends over grilled fish dishes, but it is also delicious on its own.

Vermentino is sourced from two different vineyards in New South Wales and South Australia. Vermentino is an Italian Varietal, and it is well suited to the warm wine regions of Australia due to its ability to retain freshness and acidity in warmer climates. The Metal Label Vermentino is a pale lemon colour with silver hues. Aromas of tropical fruits combined with hints of pear and citrus jump from the glass and follow through to the palate creating a wine that is rich with a great depth of flavour and a crisp acidity. The Vermentino is a perfect match for light seafood dishes such as tempura prawns, or enjoy on its own. As has been reviewed in imbibe.com: “An aromatic nose of orange and lemon-slice citrus notes, with pear and more citrus in the palate. A great wine for pairing with seafood such as calamari. Light on its feet, with some really pithy lemon notes and excellent texture. Bright and lovely. Vermentino may be the next Pinot Girgio. In the May/June issue of Winestate it was described as a “nice example of style with delicate citrus bouquet and soft pleasant palate with good fruit weight. Very drinkable” In the Sunday examiner review: “This is a cracking new-release white from Berton Vineyard in the new South Wales Riverina that underlines exactly why there is so much excitement surrounding the Italian white grape variety Vermentino, which retains vibrancy and acid in warmer climates. It is very refreshing, crisp and flavoursome and would be a great partner for Japanese dishes like sushi or sashimi or perhaps with fish and chips. Brilliant value, too”.

This Cabernet Sauvignon is sure to impress with impenetrable violet hues and intense aromas, displaying red berries coupled with hints of sweet blackberry jam and a touch of vanillin oak. Subtle fine velvet tannins marry perfectly with the intense, concentrated palate of ripe blackberries, blackcurrant and well integrated oak.

As reviewed by the ciaomagazine.com: “Best value Chardonnays”. It was also described as crisp, fresh, and easy to drink wine”. In another review in tonylove.com it was written: “Though based in the Riverina, this family producer sources from other regions and it shows here, starting shyly with a faint note of yellow grapefruit and creamier layers underneath followed by just enough citrus acidity to remain fresh and zesty. It’s fairly one directional, but still at this rate has decent mouth presence.”

The Moscato Frizzante is fresh and light with a sweet and delicate palate. Aromas of fresh grape, orange blossom and hints of musk jump from the glass. The palate has delicate flavours of lychees and peach with floral undertones, soft clean acidity and a light frizzante which tickles the palate.

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, vanillan 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 or strong cheeses! In a review in Daily mail, Matthew Jukes wrote “This is an imposing and massively impressive wine! It looks good and tastes divine without troubling the wallet too much.” In Tonylove.com it has been reviewed as “This ripper red will suit the smallest Father’s day gift budget. This has all the hallmarks of good, generous, ripe shiraz with plenty of dark fruits, as well as a dash of sweet vanilla spice oak. The big, black bottle and metallic label only add to its gifting appeal.
