I really hate this image. It would put me right off if I didn’t know better.

This 12 pack of the ‘Holy Trinity‘ from the Sacred Hill range by De Bortoli is always at least ¥100 less than the retail price. And we have just reduced it again (October 2015).

australian-falgThese 3 wines are about as good as it gets below ¥100 and we have put them together for you to reduce your clicks when selecting each wine.

The Chardonnay is a regular Gold Medal Winner, the Fizz is our top selling bubbly and the Shiraz Cabernet is winning Silver and Bronze Medals (and now the House red wine of Marriott Hotels in Shanghai).

De Bortoli has now been honoured as Winestate Magazine’s Australian Winery of the year. We love De Bortoli: An all round success story.

BTW, their Family Selection range is the same wine in a different, some would say, now vastly superior package at the same price.

Try the Sacred Hill Shiraz and Cabernet Merlot too. The former is a bronze medal winner, the latter also is silver Medal Winner. Yum  yum.

Summer quaffing at it quaffiest.

4x Chardonnay

A gold medal winner last year, one of our top selling wines, amazing quality for the price and a wine we drink at home every month!

Pale straw with green hue. Zesty lemon citrus and stone fruit aromas balanced with buttery oak notes. Fruit-driven wine with crisp acid, great texture and balance on the mid palate. The subtle oak approach has given added structure to the wine without overpowering it leaving the citrus and stone fruit flavours to dominate.

4x Sparkling Brut NV

So Yummy, that our friends regularly argue this is just like champagne. It is not like Champagne at all. It is less complex. It is ten times cheaper. There is no hype here. Just a sturdy, refreshing, dry, crisp bubbly. You can afford to drink it all summer and all summer long you will wonder why other folks dream about those elusive champagnes that cost the earth and are often over-dry, overly biscuity or just plain rubbish. De Bortoli is solid from top to bottom. We love this company!

Pale straw in colour. Attractive nose of strawberries and cream with citrus notes in the background. A very refreshing, easy drinking sparkling wine, with fresh fruit flavours. Delicate and creamy mouth- feel, finishing with crisp acidity.

4x Shiraz Cabernet

De Bortoli have done it again. The wine is currently a silver and bronze medal winner at several wine competitions. I sampled this on Sunday night after a roast dinner (Nov 2011). I drank the entire bottle. That’s not normal for me.

They have the sweet-fruit-oak-tannic balance to perfection and not simply for a wine in this price-point. I was staggered that they can do this so effectively, time after time when I taste so much disappointment from time to time in higher priced wines. My hats go off to De Bortoli again. That’s 2 silver and a bronze from the range we stock. Not bad. They are fast on their way to getting a winery of the year award from the like of James Halliday.

Vibrant purple, deep crimson. Lifted plum and spice. Fresh fruit, berry and toasty vanillin oak. Soft, rounded tannins with good length.
