Proudly Australian family owned since 1928. DB Family Selection wines represent the De Bortoli name and love of sharing good wine and food with family and friends.
A mild summer with a long ripening period and lower yields resulted in good natural acidity and some of the best varietal flavours seen for many years. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vineyards were selected and monitored to select fruit that exhibited the ripe black fruit characters with balanced sugar ripeness.
Fermentation at warmer temperatures of 20-22°C for five to seven days to optimise the extraction of desirable flavour and colour whilst retaining a soft tannin structure.
