The Accomplice Semillon Sauvignon

The Accomplice Semillon Sauvignon

The Accomplice Semillon Sauvignon

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

Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc from select vineyards in the Riverina were chosen for their intense varietal characters.

Drought, fire and flood, followed by plague. The 2020 vintage threw everything at us, fortunately the smoke did not reach the Riverina and impact the fruit. The drought again impacted us with a dry winter and early spring. Thus resulting in some restriction of growth and yield. Leading to good quality fruit. Harvest began 7 Days later than the previous few years beginning after Australia Day.

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.”

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.

Sauvignon / Semillon Blends

Sauvignon Blanc is often blended with Semillon which creates a perfect partnership and fuller palate style. Particularly good from Margaret River region.
