Season - The King Valley experienced a mild growing season following timely spring rains. Near perfect growing conditions for full flavour development of the fruit. Grapes harvested late march. Whilst in the Riverina a wet winter and spring provided plenty of moisture for a good growing season. A dry and warm summer allowed for a slow ripening retaining lots of fruit and natural acidity.

Winemaking - Each variety was harvested separately at a range of baume levels to provide both freshness and intensity of the varietal flavours. Portions of each variety were matured with French and American oak for the touch of vanilla sweetness.

Expert Reviews

Showing the diversity of the De Bortoli portfolio, this great-value, Down The Lane 2017 Merlot-Durif-Shiraz has 13.5% alcohol and shines bright garnet in the glass. It shows forest floor aromas, zingy cassis front-palate flavour and cherry, licorice and vanillin oak on the middle palate. Spearminty tannins play at the finish.

4 stars. John Lewis The Newcastle Herald June 2018

Winery Tasting Notes

Variety - 40% Merlot, 31% Durif, 29% Shiraz.

Region - 62% King Valley, 30% Riverina.

Cellaring - Ready for enjoyment now or will give complexity with short term cellaring.

A lovely lick of juicy Merlot in harmony with rich Durif and the spiciness of Shiraz make for good companions in this innovative blend. With hints of vanilla, neatly balanced sweetness and soft tannins that give a generous length of flavour.

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.
