Expert Reviews

"Windy Peak has attained a new pinnacle as it hones in on regional styles. This is an expertly constructed wine from a tough season, alive with fragrant lime blossom, cool lemon zest and cut grass aromas. A zippy and crunchy style, built around a high-tensile core of lime juice which lingers clean and long."

Rating 91 - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly, Wine 100, (MAY/2012)

"The standouts in the wine are a little chalky complexity, and acidity that finds some extra kick for refreshment. Finishes dry, shows vibrant tropical fruit flavours up front. Touch short, but forgiveable for brisk clip it moves at."

Rating 88 - Mike Bennie, Wine 100, (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.
