Dessert Wine

  • The sweet white young are delicious, they are slightly jammy but still retain acidity. With age they evolve on more concentrated aromas, such as the bitter orange confit and small notes of salted butter caramel
  • Riverina Fruit is harvested from our own vineyards and a couple of selected growers that produce Botrytis Semillon especially for De Bortoli Wines.
    The fruit ripened slowly over the summer months due to growing conditions with little rain falling until mid March which instigated the botrytis in the vineyard. Further showers over the next month kept the botrytis ticking along until we achieved a desired sugar content with plenty of botrytis present. Harvest began early May and lasted six weeks. Layers of nectarines, quinces, citrus flavours with a subtle hint of nougat nuttiness. Subtle oak interplay adds to the texture and a well balanced acidity gives length and structure to this delicious wine. A wine that can be enjoyed with a lovely selection of cheeses and dried fruits as your dessert or after dinner. It can also be served with an Exotic Fruit Sorbet or Peach Melba
  • A fabulous dessert wine, sweet and luscious with a great backbone of fine acidity for a clean finish. The nose is fresh with classic botrytis marmalade and ripe nectarine. Flavours on the palate are richer: honey with a finishing twist of bitter orange
  • A world-class chinese ice wine of thrilling purity and intensity, offering aromas of pear, lychee and honey. The palate’s lusciousness is balanced by a keen citrus edge, and the freshness of flavour carries through to a beautifully cleansing finish. This Chinese dessert wine has aromas of pear, lychee and honey. The palate’s lusciousness is balanced by a keen citrus edge  
  • The name Hukapapa comes from the Maori language and literally translates to mean frost/ice. This wine has wonderful aromas of lime, orange and stone fruit on the nose. The luscious palate has concentrated honeyed, citrus, marmalade flavours with a long lingering finish
  • Acknowledged as one of the region's top winemakers, Karoly Ats combines traditional techniques with modern technology to create the award-winning Royal Tokaji range. Tokaji is produced by blending hand-picked shrivelled or 'aszu' berries with top quality base wines. A medium amber colour with a nose of orange peel, figs and cinnamon. The sugar on the palate is well-balanced by the fine acidity, leading to a clean, refreshing finish. Will continue to improve over several years but drink now, slightly chilled, with blue cheeses or fruit desserts
  • This late-harvested and lightly fortified Muscat comes from Rutherglen in Victoria, the home of Australian stickies. Grapey Muscat aromas are followed by raisiny, caramelised sugar flavours making it a world-class pudding wine
