Expert Reviews

"The shiraz is a strong bouquet of ripe plum and berry fruit enhanced by spicy oak... Best enjoyed as a youthful wine and mix it with lamb, beef, tomato based pasta dishes or pizza."

Alex McKinnon, Geraldton Guardian (AUG/2012)

"...It is generous warm and round, and it shows appealing fruit of some quality for a wine in this price range. At under $6 and occasionally at under $5 and sometimes even lower than that, yep this is the one."

Joondalup Wanneroo Times Community (MAR/2012)

"It is generous warm and round and it shows appealing fruit of some quality for a wine in this price range. It is nicely balanced with no 'awkward edges' and has a relaxed and easy finish. You will not need to surreptitiously pour this into the pot plant behind you or go looking for something better at the next neighbour's get together... as this will be the better one."

John Jens, Western Suburbs Weekly (FEB/2012)

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.
