Overview

We are fortunate to have some of the oldest plantings in the Yarra Valley dating back to 1971, with varieties and sites that are genuinely interesting and worthy of release as single vineyard wines. The Pinot Noir reaches new heights in potential for longevity. Soft, fine, plump, spicy, fine tannin, good acidity, overall quite a calm wine.

Expert Reviews

"Mid-garnet; as always a wine to contemplate with red fruits mingling among savoury aromas of cold tea, vine sap and Asian spices; light on entry, the underlying structure and lacy acidity takes time to unravel across the palate, building to a crescendo of flavour that is both attractive and a little muscular; power contained by elegance."

Rating 95 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013, (JUL/2012)

"A single vineyard pinot noir sourced from some of the oldest plantings in the Yarra Valley. This genuinely interesting site produces a soft, fine and plump wine full of spice, with fine tannin and good acidity. Overall, it's quite a calm drop."

Nick Ryan, Gourmet Traveller Wine, (MAY/2012)

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.
