De Bortoli are all about a more sustainable approach to viticulture, essentially to produce wines with a sense of place. The focus is on a move towards biological farming. There's also an increasing focus on single vineyard wines. The gentle northeast facing slope across the road from Tarrawarra Abbey is a wonderful, early ripening site, though markedly cooler than much of Yarra Valley, it sires an exquisitely aromatic wine. Grapes are all hand picked and hand sorted to ensure that only the finest fruit is included. Batches are treated to plunges and remontage throughout three wekks of ferment, followed by ten months maturation on fine lees in a mix of seasoned and new oak casks.
Bright scarlet with darker robes. Very pretty black cherry fruit, complex, slightly rustic nose, mocha and spice with hints of strawberry and clove. The palate is powerful with spice, earth and red fruit flavours that build in texture, followed by an elegant finish with with fine powdery tannins.
