Willowglen Sparkling Brut

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

New South Wales

The Hunter Region is the premium wine region of New South Wales and one of Australia’s most well-known, and historically important wine regions. Distinctive styles of Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz are the hallmark of this region. James Busby the man credited with bringing the vine to Australia was associated with the Hunter Valley through his brother-in-law William Kelman. Kelman is thought to be the first to plant vines in the Hunter. George Wyndham planted grapes in 1832. Penfolds bought the property in 1904 naming it Wyndham Estate. Dr Henry Lindeman purchased land around Raymond Terrace in the 1830s. So too did James King whose legacy passed onto Maurice O’Shea who came to the forefront of Hunter Valley winemaking in the 1920s. The area fell into depression for many years, but gradually made a comeback in the early 1960s. Today the region is booming. The climate is regarded as warm to hot. The main wine styles: White – Semillon (regarded as one Australia’s greatest and unique wines, with great aging potential), Chardonnay; Red – Shiraz.
