Established in 1928, De Bortoli Wines represents 90 years of successful winemaking legacy of the De Bortoli family. It was founded by Giuseppina and Vittorio De Bortoli, who moved from Italy to New South Wales for a better life. Over the years, the brand has earned a reputation for fine wines. Its Deen Vat Series range is a tribute to Vittorio’s son, Deen, who with the support of his wife, Emri, carried forward the family business to new heights using innovation and new technological skills.
Fruit from Riverina for Deen Vat 1 Durif was cold-soaked and fermented with a small amount of Viognier. A part of this wine was stored in stainless steel while remaining matured in a combination of new & old American oak for 12 months.
The resultant blend showcases a lovely crimson colour with purple rim. Aromas and flavours of dark fruits, spices and chocolate oak are beautifully integrated with fine tannins to culminate in a generous & long finish.
