Overview

If you're a fan of Shiraz, trying an inky-black Durif is like stumbling across a wonderful bar at the end of a quaint alleyway. The flavours are as generous as a free-pour, ripe and full-bodied with spicy dark fruits and savoury oak to finish. Beef wellington, a herbed rack of lamb or chilli con carne are all excellent choices with this dry red wine.

Expert Reviews

"This variety is ideal for delivering a decent bang for your buck at this price point and this one nails it perfectly. Full and round. There's a bit of alcohol warmth but it is all in balance. Lots of chocolate and blackberry fruit flavours. Chewy and delicious." Rating 92 - Ray Jordan, The West Australian, July 2014

"Generous full bodied flavours with spicy dark fruits and savoury oak to finish. It's delicious paired with lamb and rich cuisine." Super Food Ideas, October 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.
