Winery Tasting Notes

Deen De Bortoli was a true visionary in the Australian wine industry, whose mission was to create quality wine for everyone to enjoy. The ‘DEEN’ range is a true reflection of his pursuit and a great tribute to Deen himself.

DEEN VAT 8 SHIRAZ 2017

Region

Heathcote

Season

Heathcote had a cool dry winter followed by good rains in late spring and early summer enabled the vines to produce a good crop of flavoursome fruit. A dry harvest period enabled good ripening conditions producing wines with good varietal expression.

Tasting Note

Deep purple with ruby red hues. Layers of blackberries, plum and hints of violets. The wonderfully concentrated yet supple palate delivers more dark fruits melded by savoury well structured grainy tannins.

General Characteristics

Dry / Full bodied

Winemaking

Fruit was harvested in the cool of the morning to maximise fruit freshness. Upon reception at the winery, the fruit was carefully destemmed into our Potter fermenters where it underwent a cool ferment for a total period of 10 days. Pressed off at dryness, a small portion matured in Stainless vat whilst remainder in new and older Hogs head barrels for 12 months prior to blending for bottling.

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.
