A case of De Bortoli Vat 8 2006 wine for $119 delivered from Wine List

15 January 2010

De Bortoli wine is known more for being cheap and cheerful than medal winning. The 2006 has had enough accolades and medals to make it worth listing up here - that, the price is good and there's not a lot of the 2006 around any more.

The 2006 won these medals
Gold Medal - 2008 Royal Sydney Wine Show
Gold Medal - 2007 Royal Hobart International Wine Show
Silver Medal - 2007 International Wine & Spirit Competition
Bronze Medal - 2007 National Wine Show of Australia

And James Halliday has this to say about it
This was a surprise gold medal winner at the Sydney Wine Show 2008, and has flourished over the intervening six months. It has abundant sweet plum and blackberry fruit on both bouquet and palate, thanks to pre-fermentation maceration, and has spicy vanillin oak now integrated into the wine.

Worth a look if your after some wine.
