Expert Reviews

"De Bortoli’s 'Deen' series is often a happy hunting ground.

This is pretty much a case in point. It has good depth and appealing flavour. It tastes of liquid toast, blackberry, coffee and woody spice. Those toast and coffee notes feel a bit manufactured but the depth of flavour here is impressive, especially given the price. Indeed it would knock the vast bulk of its market/price competitors for six."88 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, September 2014

"At this price you’re not expecting wines that will sweep you off your feet. Instead, you’re after something tasty and good enough to take to the backyard barbie. It’s a multi-regional blend, full-flavoured with mixed berries combined with some darker blackfruit. It has a savoury quality about it"

Rick Allen, Manly Daily, October 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep dark red with violet and garnet hues.

Aroma

This robust wine has a rich bouquet of fresh blackberries and plums accompanied by distinct pepper and spicy notes.

Palate

An opulent style of spicy fruit, plums and cherries. The palate has a plush texture of soft fine grained tannins, peppery oak and a hint of black tea that provides a complexity ensuring a well balanced mouth filling and flavoursome finish.

Food Matching

A good partner to beef casseroles, ribs, smoked brisket or a rich pasta.

Cellaring

Excellent to drink now or will give complexity with short term cellaring for up to five years.

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.
