The 2006 vintage featured a warm summer following good spring rainfall, mild with dry conditions continuing until late in the season. This allowed the grapes to reach balanced maturity before being hand-harvested and hand-sorted ensuring only the best quality fruit. The Yarra Valley has a rich history of premium wine production dating back 150 years. The region with its well structured soils and relatively cool climate, (it is cooler than Bordeaux and slightly warmer than Burgundy) is ideally suited for viticulture. This is where Leanne De Bortoli's award winning winemaker husband Steve Webber and his team craft exquisite wines made from classic varieties Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Viognier, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. Yarra Valley Estate Grown wines are sourced from the De Bortoli family estate at Dixon's Creek in the Yarra Valley. The mature, low yielding vines deliver exceptional fruit quality to the winery. This is preserved throughout the winemaking process with gentle, low intervention techniques to produce wine with varietal detail and purity reflective of site and season. The idea is to create wine with a 'sense of place.'.
