De Bortoli Yarra Valley Estate Grown Pinot Noir 1999

Member Review by Michael at MAX:

DE BORTOLI YARRA VALLEY 1999 PINOT NOIR Opened 12/02/10 Nose: Fresh lively young fruit. Colour: dark plumb fading around the edges, showing some age. But the flavour is so fresh and clean with soft acidity, it is hard to believe the wine is so old, it is in unbelievable condition, the most perfect bottle of aged Pinot I have had the pleasure of drinking in a long time. Not only it is Australian but it highlights what the Yarra Valley can do with Pinot! I

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.
