Refreshing bubbles from Aussie. This sparkling brut comes to us from just across the ditch, from one of Australia’s biggest and most well-known winemaking families, De Bortoli. A mix of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are picked once ripe and then pressed before being cold fermented to retain their freshness and flavour. There’s a second ferment in tank which increases the wines complexity and allows the ripe notes of stone fruit and citrus to shine. Multiple vintages are blended together to create a consistent release year after year, meaning you can serve it year-round without worrying about the quality! - 16/20, Wine Central Tasting Panel
This lovely, pale straw coloured wine has an attractive, fresh and fruity nose that will draw you in on first breath. A refreshing, easy drinking sparkling wine with fresh fruit flavours, delicate creamy mouthfeel and crisp, clean finish with balanced acidity. Best enjoyed in the next year or two.

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."
