De Bortoli Willowglen Brut Riverina NV

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought a case of six bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/14763 for £15. De Bortoli is an Australian Company [www.debortoli.com.au ] that was founded in 1928 by Italian immigrant Vittorio de Bortoli and is still run by his descendants.Like many Champagnes it is a blend of chardonnay and pinot noir.I served a bottle at my sister's house during our Christmas festivities and everybody enjoyed it.It is a dry sparkling wine with hints of lemon and shortbread.It says on the back label 'This sparkling wine displays herbaceous aromas,fresh fruit flavours and a creamy palate with a crisp clean finish' and I think I would agree.It was also very good value for money.

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.
