Tyson Stelzer says: They make it sound easy at De Bortoli. "Winemaking: It's harder to do nothing" reads the back label. They've certainly done nothing extremely well this time, leaving the show to fresh cherries, violets and sinewy tannins.
Colour Semi translucent crimson mauve colour with mauve hue
Nose Very pretty black cherry fruit, complex slightly rustic nose with a hint of strawberry and clove.
Taste The palate is powerful with spice, earth and red fruit flavours that build in texture. Elegant finish with with fine powdery tannins which give good persistence
