2012 De Bortoli Regional Reserve Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauv
It's not hard to appreciate the beauty of a great Yarra Valley Cabernet. Elegant, refined, food-friendly and refreshingly low in alcohol, the best Yarra Cabs are delicious wines that look good at nearly any age.
Today we have a prime example of this beautiful wine style in the De Bortoli Regional Reserve Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. As one of the largest winemakers in the Yarra, De Bortoli have access to an enviable array of vineyard resources to call from at all points of the Valley. This Cabernet comes from the warmer parts down on the Valley floor - the best location for Yarra Cab - and is very much built in the traditional, medium bodied style, with leafy, cigar box and cassis flavours and elegance at every corner. It's always interesting to see who appreciates a wine like this, and this has gained some favour over the ditch in NZ, with Kiwi wine critic Raymond Chan very complementary, calling this 'an elegantly concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon with blackcurrant leaf and herb flavours, and a fine, firm, lively palate' and gave this 17/20 (which is pretty fair as Chan is a hard marker). This is a delicious Yarra red, from a vintage that James Halliday rates as 10/10, and at four years old drinking very nicely. Critically acclaimed Yarra Cabernet like this? Well that's just excellent value drinking.
2014 De Bortoli Regional Reserve Heathcote Shiraz
This Shiraz shows all of the plump red fruit that Heathcote is famous for, stirred in with a liberal dose of spice and grainy tannins for good measure. Heathcote itself is a great place for Shiraz, home to heavy-hitting wines like Wild Duck Creek Duck Muck and Jasper Hill's Georgia's Paddock Shiraz. Needless to say that it's serious red wine country - and that's a big reason why this De Bortoli Heathcote Shiraz is so good! Packed full of plum and dark fruit flavours, it's a wonderfully rich and meaty red with both spicy fruit and real tannins.
2016 De Bortoli Regional Reserve Yarra Valley Chardonnay
The key to this wine's appeal is that it combines richness and texture with proper acidity, the flavours in the white peach department with an edge of citrus and creamy lees/oak flavours. Crafted from De Bortoli's Dixons Creek vineyard, and out of a seriously great vintage in the Yarra Valley, this is proper Yarra Chardonnay.
2016 De Bortoli Regional Reserve Yarra Valley Pinot Noir
Quality, Yarra Valley Pinot Noir at a great price? Gimme gimme gimme!!!
This youthful vibrant wine is a juicy and quite luscious Yarra Valley Pinot Noir from a reasonably warm vintage, with dark cherry flavours and a hint of oak spice. It's quite forward and generous considering its age, and very approachable. A delicious Yarra Pinot, from one of the best Pinot Noir producers in the world!
