De Bortoli La Boheme Cuvee Blanc NV (6 x 750mL) Yarra Valley, VIC

Winemaker

Steve Webber

Winemaking

Fruit is gently pressed to extract the most delicate juice. The pressed juice is fermented in both tank and cask for freshness and complexity, and aged on lees in tank and large old casks to enhance the mineral and savoury nuances of the wine. The base wines are blended each year with the previous vintage for each NV blend. The resultant cuvées undergo secondary fermentation to give them their final bubbles.

Expert Reviews

"A chardonnay dominant blend that is lemony-fresh with hints of baked bread and raw cashew. It has a fine bead and excellent sugar/acid balance. A well-made, satisfying drop with sherbety acidity on the finish. Recommended." 92 points Toni Paterson The Real Review July 2017

"This is a beautiful and delicate little sparkling wine created with a blend of recent vintages and some more serious complex reserve wine. It's largely chardonnay with less than 10 per cent pinot but has heightened savoury minerality to produce a smart wine." 92 points Ray Jordan Sunday Times (Perth) May 2017

This pale, fresh and crunchy new release inspired by the De Bortoli ladies captures the bright expression of Yarra chardonnay in lemon, grapefruit and nashi pear character, finishing with tense acidity. Rating 90 - Tyson Stelzer, Australian Wine Companion 2017

Winery Tasting Notes

Pale colour with a green tinge. Citrus, hazelnuts, brioche, complex and lifted aromas. Finesse and complexity on the palate, lively with good weight and balance. Perfect with antipasto platter of cured meats; salami; pate or cured salmon.

Classic bistro wine – ethereal, aromatic, textural, sophisticated and so easy to pair with food. They’re wines with poise and charm. Enjoy with friends over a few plates of tapas.
