2018 Vintage | 100% Shiraz
The De Bortoli family story is one of determination and triumph that started 90 years ago in war-torn Europe and is now told, generations later, across Australia.
Their heritage encompasses the universal story of immigrants making good in an adopted land, the rise and rise of the Australian wine industry and the tale of a hardworking and innovative family who considers good wine, good food and good friends to be among the true pleasures in life.
A dry winter followed by good rains in late spring and early summer enabled the vines to produce an good crop of flavourful fruit. A dry harvest period enabled good ripening conditions producing wines with good varietal expression.
Inviting aromas of red berries and spice. The palate is abundant in plum, blackberry with hints of dark chocolate and oak. Generous and silky.
