Australian success. Commended at the Decanter wine Awards 2013. Our joint top selling white wine, amazing quality for the price and a wine which we drink at home every week. A top seller even before they started winning competitions. The subtle oak approach has given added structure to the wine without overpowering it, leaving the citrus and stone fruit flavours to dominate.

De Bortoli Sacred Hill Shiraz: Wine Man Pick

October 27, 2011
De Bortoli Sacred Hill Shiraz

Australian success story pt. 3. We were initially skeptical of a drinkable sub ¥100 Aussie Shiraz. Often they are blended with Cabernet or malbec (or other grapes) and chucked out as part of the Great Australian Wine Glut. That was in 2010. Yet, De Bortoli has consistently shown that they have an ability to reach market at this price point with something eminently drinkable. They are revolutionary: It’s even won a SILVER MEDAL.

November 3, 2011
De Bortoli Sacred Hill Sparkling Brut

Australian success pt. 4. All hail DeBortoli. So yummy is this, our friends regularly argue it’s just like champagne. It is not like Champagne at all. It is far less complex. It is ten times cheaper. There is no hype here. Just a sturdy, refreshing, dry, crisp bubbly, that no-one dislikes, and certainly not at this price.
