Foundstone Merlot

Foundstone Merlot

Foundstone Merlot

The Foundstone Merlot is deep garnet red in appearance, displaying opulent aromas of blood plum, bramble and earth interwoven with toasty oak. The palate is generous and concentrated, with flavours of dark cherry, raspberry compote, dried herb and velvety tannins.

Berton Vineyards Foundstone Merlot is a soft, plummy Aussie red with intense aromas and a juicy texture. Cassis and plum flavours are given added complexity by judicious oak ageing.

Pairs beautifully with aged cheeses, rack of lamb and baked vegetables, mushroom risotto or is a delight on its own

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. The Reserve Shiraz and Reserve Chardonnay wines are still sourced from this plot. In 2007 Bob purchased the Yenda winery in the heart of the Riverina. This state of the art facility allows Berton Vineyards to produce value for money wines which sit alongside his premium single vineyard offerings.

Berton Vineyards all started at our Eden Valley Vineyard, in High Eden, South Australia. High Eden is a subregion of Eden Valley, situated in the Barossa Valley. It is the highest part of the Barossa, about 500 meters above sea level. In this beautiful part of the world we have planted Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The best parcels of fruit from our Shiraz vineyards go into our Berton Vineyards Bonsai Shiraz, our flagship wine. Fruit from the Shiraz vineyard also forms the backbone for our Reserve Shiraz, which won the Decanter Platinum Best Value Rhone varietal in 2017. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc make our High Eden Range, and the Chardonnay goes into the White Rock Chardonnay and our Reserve Eden Valley Chardonnay.

Berton Vineyards

The Berton Vineyards story began 25 years ago from humble beginnings.

We are still young enough to be awed by tradition but we also challenge ourselves by testing the boundaries of winemaking.

We pride ourselves on being a contemporary winery with an emphasis on all that is casual, friendly and approachable in wine. Our philosophy is to make affordable, easy drinking wines of quality achieved through pairing modern technology with traditional techniques.

Testament to our philosophy are our award winning wines such as our High Eden Bonsai Shiraz, Reserve Botrytis Semillon and Metal Label range.

Eden Valley

The Eden Valley is between 400 and 600 metres in the Barossa Range, part of the Mount Lofty Range. It shares it historical roots with the Barossa Valley. Yalumba has substantial vineyard holdings, and a winery at Angaston, the site of the first vines planted by founder Samuel Smith in 1849. The cool climate provides ideal conditions for the production of high quality Riesling, Chardonnay and Shiraz wine.


The other main grape in Bordeaux, used for blending with Cabernet Sauvignon. This grape produces wines with soft, rich and velvety texture, with very ripe fruit flavour that are low in tannins.
