Expert Reviews

"Fresh and inviting, with pure red currant and cherry notes at the core, gliding smoothly into a long and expressive finish. Hints at white chocolate and white pepper flavors as the finish lingers against modest tannins. Drink now through 2020."90 Points - Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator (USA), July 2014

"Deep crimson-purple; a superabundance of full-bodied black fruits and savoury, tarry tannins; a conundrum. Were the tannins deliberately retained with winter braised dishes in mind, or was it intended to be fined? The price is low, so more time in bottle isn't an expensive solution."88 Points - James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015, July 2014

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.
