93 Points & Top 100 Wines of 2016 James Halliday

The Yarra Valley’s very own opera Dame Nellie Melba, enchanted the world as Mimi in Puccini’s La Boheme. The famous opera is based in the characterful Latin Quarter of Paris, which these days is full of artisan wine bars and bistrots serving interesting and quirky wines from all over the world.

A mixture of whole bunches and whole berries with some early foot stomping to create some juice to start the fermentation. A combination of foot plunging and turnovers during fermentation. Pressed and racked to 500 litre casks for 4 months. Syrah 81%, Gamay Noir 19%

“Syrah is the major player, as is whole bunch fermentation. The skills of the De Bortoli winemaking team in the Yarra Valley are limitless, and the team has a very large canvas on which to portray its art. This example has great colour, vibrant red fruits and a profusion of spicy/pepper notes joining hands with fine, savoury whole bunch tannins. ‘Wine Bar style’ they say, but a pretty snappy one.” – 93 Points & Top 100 Wines of 2016 James Halliday
 

“Good buying and drinking to be had here. Very. It’s a ripe-but-nutty red with subtle infusions of dried herbs and plenty of mouth-puckering tannin. It’s just the kind of mid-weight, perfumed, savoury-but-not-up-itself red we all should be drinking more of. It isn’t thick or dense or syrupy and that’s a good thing on all scores. The price is extremely fair.” – 92 Points Campbell Mattinson
