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.
Moderate rainfall in spring and early summer followed by mild summer temperatures with cooler than usual evenings leading up to the harvest resulted in some of the best flavour seen for many years. Good natural acidity and a long ripening period combined with yields being slightly down saw great varietal flavours.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep purple with crimson red hue.
Enticing aromas of blueberry, fruit cake with undertones of violets. Complemented by chocolate/mocha oak.
Rich black plum and blueberry fruit with bold ripe tannins and help from the well integrated oak brings this wine a generous and rich palate.
Hearty pork casseroles, BBQ ribs or a platter of aged cheese.
