Deen VAT Master Blend

Deen VAT Master Blend

Deen VAT Master Blend

The Deen Vat range is a tribute to Deen De Bortoli, a true visionary in the Australian wine industry, whose mission was to create quality wine for everyone to enjoy. This unorthodox blend of Shiraz, Durif, and Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of each variety and combines for a wine with great personality. Bright red with a garnet hue. Blueberry fruits, chocolate with hints of cedar spice aromas. The generous palate has an abundance of dark fruits, structuring tannins and a hint of dark chocolate.

Viticulture

2019 saw late spring rains allowing the vines to prosper following a relatively dry winter. Lower than average yields and a significantly earlier harvest allowed for good varietal flavour development and balanced acid.

Vinification

Fruit was harvested in the cool of the morning to maximise fruit freshness. Upon reception at the winery, the fruit from each variety of each region kept separate and was carefully destemmed into Potter fermenters where the individual parcels underwent a cool ferment for a total period of 6 to 10 days. Pressed off at dryness, the wine was then put into a selection of new and older American and French hogshead barrels for 12 months. A multi-regional wine that captures the essence of each variety from the regions the fruit is sourced. Spicy Shiraz from Heathcote, the rich Durif from Riverina along with the cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon from the Yarra valley make for a harmonious blend.

Maturation

The wine was put into a selection of new and older American and French hogshead barrels for 12 months.

Food Pairing

Pair with you favourite Roast, Lamb Shanks or a delicious Ragu.

The De Bortoli family story is one of determination and triumph that started 90 years ago and is now told, generations later, across Australia.
Our heritage encompasses the universal story of immigrants making good in an adopted land, the rise and rise of the Australian wine industry and the tale of a hardworking and innovative family
who considers good wine, good food and good friends to be among the true pleasures in life.
Today, as a fourth generation enters the family business, De Bortoli is amongst the top wine producers of Australia with vineyards spanning 6 premium wine regions.

Over the past few years we have changed our thinking and our approach to growing grapes and making wine. The change is being driven by both philosophical and pragmatic factors but mostly by our desire to leave a legacy for future generations, an idea with resonance for any family-owned company.

De Bortoli Wines

“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.”

Riverina

Australia’s first vines were planted in New South Wales on the Farm Cove foreshore. The first commercial wine was made there, and the first wine exported to England – by Gregory Blaxland in 1823. Given the size and climate diversity of NSW and its large population, it is surprising that the state does not play a bigger role in Australian wine. It is a state of great contrasts, from the huge, flat expanse of irrigated vineyards in the Riverina area near Griffith to the high uplands of Mudgee in the north. The Hunter Valley is the most recognised region within NSW, famous for its long-lived Semillons and unique styled Shiraz. Riverina is the largest wine-producing region. The more recent viticultural developments are within the regions along the Great Dividing Range: Mudgee, Orange, Cowra, Hilltops etc. There is much promise and interest in the wines now being produced within these regions.
