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.

"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
