Description

  • Matured oak
  • Rich chocolate
  • Ripe blue fruit
  • Structured tannins

Deep maroon with bright red hues. Aromas of ripe blue fruits and dark chocolate. The concentrated yet supple palate shows more blue fruits, rich chocolate, hints of salt bush and elegantly structured tannin's to finish. Ready for immediate enjoyment and will continue to evolve over the next 7-10 years with good cellaring.

Vineyards are carefully selected for a balance of fruit weight and ripeness. Harvest is carried out in the cool of the morning. Fruit is then carefully destemmed into Potters and fermented at 25-30°C over 7-8 days. Pressed, racked and matured in new and older hogs head barrels for 12 months. Approximately 30% was kept in tank to retain those lovely fruits to blend with the oak matured portions.

2018 saw a cooler and a slightly wetter than average winter, vineyards experienced regular rainfall and warm temperatures throughout the spring which was then followed up with a warm and dry summer with generally lower yields and great fruit concentration.

Deen De Bortoli was a true visionary in the Australian wine industry, whose mission was to create quality wine for everyone to enjoy. The ‘DEEN’ range is a true reflection of his pursuit and a great tribute to Deen himself.

Food Pairing: Full bodied dry red, ready to enjoy with your favourite steak or roast this weekend.
