Expert Reviews

Slightly nutty aromas with fresh fruit and gentle sweetness, innocuous as it is pleasing. Simple flavours, a clip of phenolics lending some boundaries, tight acidity freshening the wine. It has some length, lightness, freshness, pleasing simple fruit character but there’s actually a touch of structure in place too. Geewhiz. A neat, appealing, good-natured, tightly wound, lightly-flavoured dry white wine. Kudos. 89 Points - Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au, December 2013

"Ridiculous that you can get a really good drink at a price like this. But you can, so if you’re looking for a neat, easy-drinking, well-rounded young chardonnay with minimal oak, then this is for you. Clean and pure, and good for the next 12 months."Best Value White - 89 Points Ray Jordan, West Australian, November 2013

"Light straw-green; a fragrant and fresh bouquet is smartly followed by a juicy stone fruit palate and a clean finish. It is surely impossible to find better value for a chardonnay that knocks the socks of pinot gris and does so at a derisory price. Just drink it now." 88 Points - James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015, July 2014

"This is a clean, well-made chardonnay with a youthful bright, light-yellow colour and slightly raw herbal and lanolin aromas, with no sign of oak. It’s light, lean and fairly short on the palate. A simple quaffing white wine, but great value at the price. Drink young."85 Points - Huon Hooke, Sydney Morning Herald, March 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.
