Db Family Selection Shiraz 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Stemmy, earthy, lightly tarry, and somewhat unusual with noticeable sulphur and some attractive tart red berry fruit on the nose. A bit sweet on entry, with that sweetness adding body and richness that wraps around the modest core of red fruit this wine brings to the table. it’s medium light bodied Shiraz and easy to drink but it’s also short and a little shrill once the sweetness wears off. 79pts

De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo. Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines. Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends. Below is a video of the De Bortoli family taken as part of the Australia's First Families of Wine joint marketing initiative which involves some of Australia's oldest and most respected wine families.
