De Bortoli Deen Vat 4 Petit Verdot 2007
Other Red Wine from Australia
Deep purple with inky red hues. Blackcurrant and spice aromas. Rich plum and toasty mocha oak. Full tannins, fleshy mid palate with generous varietal character and flavor.
Try with chargrilled eggplant and rich napoli pasta.
Wine Spectator - "Bright, focused and appealing for its juicy boysenberry and floral aromas and flavors, pushing past a layer of fine tannins to echo on the finish. Best from 2010 through 2015. 18,000 cases made."
Australian Wine Companion - "Great colour and an abundance of juicy red fruits; quite toasty on the finish, and quite a fun, easy-drinking barbecue wine. "
The Wine Advocate - "The 2007 Petit Verdot Vat 4 is purple-colored with layered black fruits, excellent grip, and a long, powerful finish. "

De Bortoli Wines is a third generation family wine company established by Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli in 1928. The couple emigrated to Australia from Northern Italy, from mountain villages at the foothills of the Italian Alps, near the historic town of Asolo.
Their son, the energetic and dynamic Deen De Bortoli, (b 1936 – d 2003) expanded and consolidated the business created by his parents. Deen's children established De Bortoli's reputation for premium wine including icon dessert wine Noble One and the Yarra Valley wines.
Italian family values passed down from Vittorio remain core values, there is a culture of hard work, generosity of spirit and of sharing good food, good wine and good times with family and friends. View all De Bortoli Wines
About Other AustraliaView a map of Other Australia wineries
With a landmass the size of the US, Australia has just as many appellations. Many wines are simply labeled from their state of origin. Some of these are the most popular:
New South Wales- New South Wales has a variety of smaller wine growing regions. Many wines are a blend of these smaller appellations, leading to the more encompassing designation of New South Wales.
Western Australia– A small percentage of Australia’s winemaking occurs on the West Coast. The largest Australian state, Western Australia, includes the appellations Margaret River and Great Southern.
Southeastern Australia– This appellation encompasses the states of South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria. Grapes are often trucked in from at least 2 of these states for crushing and bottling, giving the wine a more general appellation of origin. This is the broadest appellation in Australia.
About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.
