Expert Reviews

The vines are some of the oldest in the Yarra Valley (planted '71), and the wine has the particular structure that comes from the grapes such vines produce. While elegant, the wine has intensity and drive, its tannin backbone part fruit, part oak-derived, the whole-bunch component there from start to finish. A dazzler from a dazzling vintage. Rating: 96 James Halliday Wine Companion 2019 August 2018

"The vineyard was planted in 1971 and a select parcel goes into this A8. An insane colour - dark purple/garnet - and laden with pepper, spice and florals. The palate is medium-bodied savoury with dark red berries. Finely detailed with compact textural tannins - very fresh and long on the finish." 96 points Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine March 2018

"Purple fruits, spice, medium bodied, complex already despite its primal nature. And it comes with the polish and gloss that Steve Webber and his team seem to deliver time and time again. It is Syrah for the Pinot drinkers; a treasure for the cellar; a curio with a story of missing the Jimmy Watson by a whisker while collecting the Trevor Mast Trophy for Best Shiraz." Tony Harper Craft Wine Store Newsletter November 2017

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.
