Berton Vineyard Foundstone Shiraz

The grapes for the Foundstone Shiraz from Berton Vineyards are sourced from their original vineyard sites, and the range typifies core Australian wine styles. This is a well integrated Shiraz, balancing fruitiness with the more developed flavours of barrel maturation. This is a fabulous vegan red wine and is highly recommended by us all.

It's more restrained than some of Berton's other Shiraz's (known for their big, bold in-your-face fruit hit), with juicy flavours of blackberry and strawberry supported by a welcome dash of acidity (despite the high alcohol) that keeps it all fresh. The finish rounds off with a touch of vanilla and caramel from the oak. Overall, a lovely wine.

In the winery, individual blocks were fermented and pressed prior to blending and ageing with oak. No animal-based fining agents or winery aids were used during the vinification. 

Berton Vineyards is a modern, forward-looking producer, embracing the technology and possibilities of vegan winemaking.
