Overview

Understanding our soil and vineyards continues to be the focus for the production of single vineyard wines from our Dixons Creek Estate. We are now starting to see a common thread in the detail and texture of wine from these older vineyards with some interesting influence from the season.

2011 was quite cool and moist. It is a season closer to 2002, but with some more rain pressure in the January and February period. Savage crop thinning and bunch sorting ensured perfect fruit reached the fermenter.

Expert Reviews

"Light crimson-red; the bouquet is perfumed, and while relatively light-bodied, the wine has complexity and good length to its faintly spicy/juicy red fruits, French oak making a positive contribution. Whether '11 was a vintage for strict discipline is another question." Rating 91 - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, July 2013

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.
