The Accomplice Chardonnay

The Accomplice Chardonnay

The Accomplice Chardonnay

Let the Accomplice be your partner in wine. Cheeky, fun, easy drinking wine for everyday.

Light straw colour with lifted aromas of ripe peach and nectarine complemented with decent lick of vanillan oak. The palate is soft and creamy and exhibits ripe stone fruits with integrated oak and a gentle, very long finish.

A bouquet of fresh lemon pith with complexing brioche and barley sugar. The palate is treated to a voluminous mousse of citrus and freshly iced pastries that goes on and on. To the eye a pale straw hue with an unrelenting fine bead.

The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are picked in the cool of the night to retain acid. Ferments are warm to add interest and mouth feel. Harmony in the wine comes from the blending of the two varieties over numerous vintages. A secondary ferment is then undertaken in tank to add weight and a lovely creamy texture to the wine.

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.”


The Riverina region is the largest wine producing region in NSW and incorporates the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Scheme Area. The Murrumbidgee Irrigation Scheme Area was completed in 1912. Soon after the McWilliam family established their first vineyard. The McWilliam family and influence of Italian immigrants were major factors in the subsequent development of the wine growing/making in this region. The region is best known for its bulk wine; however, some wineries are making a name as ’boutique’ producers of premium wines. The climate is regarded as very hot. The main wine styles: Botrytised Semillons; Red – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot.


Australia’s most widely planted white grape variety. The heavily oaked styles of the earlier nineties are now being replaced with styles emphasising the regional fruit and greater complexity. The cooler climate regions producing styles of great elegance and finesse.
