Expert Reviews

Bright colour. The aim was a bright and crunchy style, and it hit the bullseye. Lovely warm, spicy elements are threaded through the red fruits - cherry and strawberry - and just enough oak and tanning support to complete the song. Rating: 94 James Halliday Wine Companion 2019 August 2018

Deep, bold, bright red/purple colour. The bouquet is deliciously sweet-fruited, aromatic, raspberry-like and ripe, with a cabernet-like nuance and a lot of berry-like aromatics. The palate is gorgeously fruit-sweet and succulent, soft and fleshy but also deep and intense, with a lingering aftertaste and satisfying balance. An excellent light to medium-weight shiraz. I want to drink this!" 93/100 Huon Hooke The Real Review March 2018

This is just a cracking wine - juicy, lip-smacking and very drinkable. A powerful intensity of shiraz fruit layered with abundant spice and brightness. Fresh and vibrant with defined tannin structure adding intrigue and energy. Shiraz and gamay is not a common blend - there’s probably only two or three producers in Australia that do it. So enjoyable. Callan Boys Sydney Morning Herald August 2018

A vibrant, energetic shiraz gamay blend with gentle spice, redcurrant and dark cherry flavours plus excellent mid-palate weight. Impressive succulence and softness. Rating: 93/100 Toni Paterson The Real Review August 2018

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Vibrant reds with purple edges. Spicy alluring nose of red and dark fruits, dry herb and graphite. Supple, rich, blueberry fruits, earth and forest, lots of spices, textural.

Classic bistro wine – ethereal, aromatic, textural, sophisticated and so easy to pair with food. They’re wines with poise and charm. Enjoy with friends over a few plates of tapas.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo.

Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines.

Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends.
