Overview

Winemaker

Steve Webber

Winemaking

Three distinct fermentation styles with the components. 100% whole bunch Cabernet Sauvignon fermented in open 7T pots for 20 days, lots of foot work. Traditional destemmed and crushed Cabernet with frequent pump overs and a 20 day maceration. Sangiovese with 10% whole bunch, lots of foot plunging, 15 days on skins.

Season

Warm condensed growing season. Good rain in late January settled things down and the harvest was mild, producing wines with good structure and concentration.

Winery Tasting Notes

Intense ruby with purple highlights. Intriguing, complex, blackcurrant and wild herb. Mouth filling with ripeness, texture and graininess.

Suggested Cuisine

Charcoal grilled Rib-eye.

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.

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.
