August 2020: Wine Business Magazine, Dan Traucki on our 2019 Aranel: "A truly obscure white grape variety, created in france in 1961 by crossing Grenache Gris with Saint-Pierre Doré (also incredibly rare). It is hard to find in its native land in Languedoc and Provenance and is grown nowhere else apart from in the Riverina by Berton Vineyards - surpprising given the attractivness of the wine in produces. Berton Vineyards Aranel 2019 ia a delightful white wine with alluring citrus notes and a hint of florals on the bouquet. There are plenty of gorgeous flavours of pear and peaches on the vibrant, crisp palate along with a refreshing finish. Its is drop dead gorgeous. I am confident over time other winemakers in warm climates will plant Aranel and produce classy wines like this one."
June 2020 - 93 points for our Berton Vineyard High Eden 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon in WBM May/June 2020: "This is a moody, brooding red of significant spice, dark berry fruit character and almost an inky note heading into a touch of boot polish. As a counterbalance, it has some good floral notes through the wine too. It feels pretty imposing and full in its way, but delivers hefty satusfaction well. Reviewed by Mike Bennie.

April 2020 - *Bargain Buy - Metal Label 2019 Vermentino* "Vermentino is an Italian grape that flourishes in warmer climes. It retains its fresh, bright acidity even in regions like the Riverina where this one is made. Its is a terrific everyday white quaffing wine, quite pale with zingy Granny Smith and kaffir lime notes leading to a fresh, fruity palate with tropical fruit salad notes. There is planty of length for a cheapy and you could confidently pair a bottle of this fresh, crisp and thirst-quenching numberwith anything from spicy Asian dishes to deep fried whitebait with aioli."

Review of Berton Vineyards 2010 Bonsai Shiraz "A cool customer in all departments, it didn't shine on tasting but that supports the argument that big obvious wines win medals at wine shows. What this wine has is more subtle, it builds while drinking, a quick sniff and spit misses the true character. 94 points and worth the $40 asked.
July 2014 - The Key Review of wine 62 - By Tony Keys. Review of Berton Vineyards 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon: "A shapely wine, lots of muscle but plenty of flexibility. It impresses but I think it’s not settled yet, however 93 points and worth looking at for $30. It also worked well at the table."

January 2014 - Tony Keys Reviews our Reserve 2012 Tassie Pinot Noir - "Soft fruit on the edge but a neat core of all things pinot, a slight pong on the nose and hint of the feral across the palate. It all fell into place very well and although light was a joy to drink. 93 points and outstanding value at just $20".
December 2013 - Tony Keys Reviews the Berton Vineyard 'South East Australia' Shiraz 2012 and recommends buying a dozen for Christmas: "A note to readers - one way of looking at a wine priced at just $12 (which in fact is the way all wine is looked at in the KRoW) is not just saying what is good about it but also finding what is wrong with it. On tasting this wine there is nothing that can said to be wrong with it. There are aspects that could be better such as more definition and more select grapes, but then it would be a $20 wine and not a $12 wine. It's damn good in my opinion, 90 points and fantastic value."
