Product Description

"De Bortoli Wines is a family-owned company that was established in 1928 by Italian immigrants Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli, who came from the Treviso region in northern Italy.
De Bortoli Wines is now under the custodianship of a fourth generation. Each family member is involved in the business, including the winemaking, which is overseen by Managing Director Darren De Bortoli, and Winemaker, Steve Webber, Leanne De Bortoli’s husband. Leanne and Steve manage the Yarra Valley Winery and Vineyard, Kevin De Bortoli is Company Viticulturist and Victor De Bortoli is Export Director.
De Bortoli has wineries in three diverse regions: the Riverina NSW is famous for its iconic dessert wine Noble One; the Hunter Valley NSW is renowned for the unique character and quality of its Semillon and Shiraz; and the Yarra Valley in Victoria is recognized for its premium cool climate wines. The family motto Semper ad Majora, “always striving for better”, is the cornerstone of De Bortoli family values. We consistently strive for improvement in wine quality and our commitment to the environment. As a family company we are proud of our heritage and determined to hand a sustainable business to the next generation." - Winery Notes

De Bortoli Regional Reserve Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2014 Tasting Notes

"Light straw colour with a green edge.  Bouquet full of lifted gooseberry fruit with some creamy lactic notes. Hints of cask fermentation and biscuit like lees.  The palate showing quite textural with hints of guava and herbal notes. Calm acidity and gently aromatic." - Winery Notes
