Deen De Bortoli created his Vat Series with the idea of developing a range of delicious, full-flavoured wines at an affordable price. Deen personally selected the blends and chalked the numbers on the vats to identify them.
Good winter rains followed by a warm growing season led to good yields of fruit. A hot beginning to the harvest period accelerated the ripening with frantic harvesting ensuring the fruit was picked with the ideal flavour spectrum.

Winery Tasting Notes
Intense maroon filling out to a violet rim.
This wine shows brooding concentrations of plums and blackberry accompanying a white pepper and savoury finish.
Ripe and generous dark forest fruits creates this opulent textured style. The palate has supple vanilla tones with a backdrop of oak showing burnt chocolate. A balanced wine of soft tannins with lifted notes of pepper and spice filling the mouth providing a smooth mellow generous finish.
Excellent to drink now or will give complexity with short term cellaring for up to five years.
A good partner to spicy lamb stew, smoked brisket, or a rich pasta sauce.
