Overview

Yarra Valley Estate Grown wines are sourced from the De Bortoli family vineyards at Dixons Creek in the cool-climate Yarra Valley. The mature, low yielding vines deliver exceptional quality fruit to the winery. This is preserved during winemaking with gentle, low intervention techniques to produce wine with varietal detail and purity. The idea is to create wine with a ‘sense of place’.

Dense, pronounced, brooding and slightly savoury mid-palate with a gentle drying finish.

Expert Reviews

"Mid-crimson; an elegant and complex bouquet offering redcurrant, cassis, cedar and a little dried herb complexity; the palate is medium-bodied and refined, highly polished and poised, with the palate extension via silky tannins an absolute pleasure; excellent value, high quality cabernet."

Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013, (JUL/2012)

"The Yarra is often overlooked for its cabernet and yet in good years like 2010 it can be superb. This is such a stylish expression of the variety, with a leafy red-scented berry aroma overlayed with some nice oak. The palate is refi ned

and balanced, with superb integration of fruit, oak and tannin. Lingers in the mouth with great persistence."

Rating 93 - Ray Jordan, West Australian,(JUN/2012)

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.
