Overview

2012 saw moderate rainfall in spring and early summer followed by a mild summer and cooler than usual temperatures during harvest. This resulted in good natural acidity and some of the best flavour seen for many years in the Riverina. Yields were also slightly down which saw great varietal intensity. “A one in twenty year vintage” according to Managing Director Darren De Bortoli.

Expert Reviews

"A new line from De Bortoli and one that works a treat. The Pinot Grigio is lightly structured yet has a lingering, persistent flavour. It's designed as an easy-drinking wine that doesn't need a lot of thinking but does need a lot of drinking." West Australian, December 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.
