DE BORTOLI WINES, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA
Bright red in appearance with ripe raspberries and spice on the nose. The palate is juicy and plump with cherries and a gentle tannin finish. Harvested when the fruit is showing vibrant berry flavours and plush tannins. A cool ferment on skins for 5-6 days. Gently pressed to maintain softness, freshness and maximise fruit drive. Judiciously oaked.
Despite being one of Australia's largest producers, family owned, De Bortoli wines have demonstrated a longstanding commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.
In their words; 'De Bortoli Wines is seriously committed to this new approach. We’ve gone well beyond mandatory requirements, adopting a wide range of innovative programs and practices. Water management, an ongoing move to biological farming in an increasing number of our vineyards, and a careful overhaul of our packaging and waste management practices. The ultimate – and achievable – goal is to be a 'Zero Waste Wine Company'. The changes we’ve made in the vineyard have not only brought environmental and sustainable benefits but have also resulted in healthier fruit that produces better quality wine which, in turn, leads to a healthier bottom line. It’s a classic win-win situation.
