Clean, crisp Sauvignon Blanc! Colour wise it's straw with a touch of green, the nose delivers ripe aromas of passionfruit, green apple and some grassy hints. The palate continues with flavours of passionfruit, guava and tropical fruits. Well rounded with fresh acidity keeping it lively, the mouthwatering finish will keep you coming back!
From the Winery
Proudly Australian family owned since 1928. DB Family Reserve pays tribute to the De Bortoli name and a winemaking legacy of selecting the finest parcels of fruit to create wine that reflects varietal characteristics.
Good winter rains followed by a warm growing season lead to good yields of fruit. A hot beginning to the harvest period accelerated the ripening with frantic harvesting ensuing to pick the fruit with the ideal flavour spectrum.
89% of the fruit is from Riverina which give generosity of flavours. 11% is King Valley Sauvignon to give the wine some more punch and structure to the palate. Wine making techniques included fermentation at elevated temperatures and fermentation with solids. These techniques improve texture and softness without sacrificing varietal expression.
