De Bortoli is a well established Australian winemaking brand that is beloved locally and internationally.  The family immigrated from Treviso, Italy after the first world war to Griffith, New South Wales, Australia.  Vittorio and his finacé Giuseppina started out as fruit farmers.  Winemaking came about organically when one season there was a surplus of Shiraz grapes so he decided to crush and  make wine out of them rather than let them rot.  The local Italians and other European expats offered to buy wine off him and eventually De Bortoli wines were born.  The later generations continued to innovate and expand the family’s vitivulture and winemaking legacy throughout Australia.  Today De Bortoli Wines owns four wineries in four different Australian regions and is still family operated. 

Tasting Notes

This Shiraz is vibrant red with engaging aromas of red berries with hints of spice. Medium bodied and dry.  Bursting with ripe berries and a touch of aniseed spice, combined with velvety tannins and soft acidity enrich the texture and length on the palate.  An ideal wine to have on hand for a barbecue as it pairs well with burgers, grilled lamb, pork chops.   

Method

This Shiraz is sourced from the Riverina region of southwestern New South Wales.  The Riverina is distinguished from other Australian regions by the combination of flat plains, its warm to hot climate and a good supply of water for irrigation.  The grapes are harvested at optimal balance of fruit freshness, flavour development and ripe tannins and structure.  Maceration for 7 days at 23-27ºC and aged in a combination of American and French oak.
