Overview

Each variety is fermented seperately on skins for five to six days at 20 - 22°C, this enables the rich flavours and colour to be extracted from the grapes.

Expert Reviews

"Youre not going to come across a lot of reds more easy going than this. Its light to medium bodied, soft, and ready to drink. There are red berry and cherry flavours with enough grunt and depth to satisfy. Theres a hint of spice on the finish that gives it a lift. For the casualwine drinker, this will hit the spot . and the price cant be ignored." Rick Allen, Manly Daily, Nov 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.
