Expert Reviews

"Medium-bodied, slightly leafy cabernet blend for current drinking. This range always seems to deliver excellent quality for the price. This is totally flawless as a flavoursome quaffer. Light tannin and oak influence so it’s all about that medium-weight fruit and drinking now."87 Points - Ray Jordan, West Australian, July 2014

"Yes, it is a simple, fruit-driven quaffer but, like most of the Sacred Hill range, it over-delivers on price. It is a blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot and it is cherry red and has a jelly bean nose. The front of the palate brings juicy, 13.5 per cent alcohol blackberry flavour into play and this is backed up on the middle palate by mulberry, cloves and herb characters. The finish has soft minty tannins."3.5 Stars - John Lewis, Newcastle Herald, April 2014

"Retains freshness, but is very light-bodied. Immediate drinking."86 Points - James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015, July 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.
