Expert Reviews

"Bright, fresh, rather primal fruit aromas of raspberry, cherry and cassis. Light-bodied, fruity and straight forward with taut, drying tannins."

Rating 88 - Huon Hooke, Sydney Morning Herald, (JUL/2012)

"The new-release wines from De Bortoli’s Windy Peak range offer exceptionally good drinking across the range and this is a far better wine than its cheap and cheerful price tag would indicate. Quite a powerful red for a coolclimate blend, although with only 13 per cent alcohol, it has that indefinable quality drinkability. It’s a wine that is beautifully balanced, smooth, stylish and pretty versatile, too. I’d have a few bottles on hand for when friends come around, or pair with some spaghetti and meatballs."

Winsor Dobbin, Sunday Mag, (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.
