De Bortoli DB Family Selection Merlot 2019

Easy drinking Merlot. De Bortoli is a third-generation Australian family wine producer who has taken the world by storm, with their large portfolio of quintessentially Australian wines. Originally from Italy, the family now has vineyards all around Australia from where they source their grapes, including New South Wales where the Merlot for their 2018 release was grown. It tastes like all the little red berries raspberries, cherries, cranberries and currants alongside a dash of vanilla from its oak treatment. Try it with roast chicken! - 16/20 Wine Central Tasting Panel

Crimson red with garnet hues with an bouquet of Red Plum, raspberry with background chocolate oak.The palate provides Ripe plum and cherries flavours with lingering chocolate oak and sophisticated, rounding tannins. 

Sourced from the De Bortoli Vineyards on the bank of the King River. SEASON Good Winter rains and a mild Spring lead provided good growing conditions leading into the harvest. After rain in January, a warm dry vintage followed allowing for the fruit to reach ripeness with a wealth of flavour.

The fruit was selected by the winemaker and picked when both flavour spectrum and tannin structure were developed to obtain the characters we are looking for in this wine. The grapes were cold soaked for 24-48 hours and then fermented over 7 days. Cool temperatures of 22.0-25.0°C maintained to retain fresh fruit.
