Fruit was closely monitored by the winemaker and harvested when freshness of varietal fruit and intensity of flavour was at its peak. Fruit was cold soaked for 24-48 hours to maximise colour and flavour extraction from the grapes, then fermented at 20-25oC for an average of 7-10 days. 90% matured in oak for 12 months.
"...De Bortoli’s retain the variety’s generous, ripe flavours and deep colour, while mellowing the tannins for early consumption. It’s a big, loveable mouthful of a wine at a fair price." Chris Shanahan, Canberra Times, January 2016
