De Bortoli Vat 10 Warra Valley Pinot Noir 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit beefy on the nose with cola, tea, tar and smoldering underbrush notes accenting sweet cranberry fruit. Rather round and lush on entry then turning nicely taut through the mid-palate with soft tannins supporting nicely round, though lightweight cherry and slightly peachy fruit flavors that roll onto a fairly long, somewhat rusty and lightly stemmy finish. This shows a nice level of complexity with an edge of maturity adding sweetness and softness to the palate. 89pts

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.
