Pale straw in colour. Subtle aromatics, pear and lemon zest, and a hint of herbs. Light and clean with a nice palate weight.
To secure the desired colour tone the juice is hyper-oxidized prior to alcoholic fermentation. Part of it is fermented in 14 year old French barrels whereas the rest is inoculated with a selected strain of yeast in controlled temperature stainless steel tanks. The wine is then kept on fine lees for 3 months to help intensify the flavours and add texture to the palate.

The De Bortoli story started 90 years ago with Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli creating a life for themselves as new immigrants to Australia from war-torn Europe.
They acquired land through work and support from friends, and from there began to make small amounts of dry table wine. Initially they were providing drink for fellow immigrants but as time went on Vittorio and Giuseppina's son Deen and his wife Emeri grew the family and more people came onboard to grow the business.
The fourth generation are now beginning to take the De Bortoli reigns and have the responsibility of upholding the official motto of "Semper ad Majora" - “always striving for better,” and the unofficial one "good food, good wine and good friends."
