Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Fabulous concentration of citrus and honeyed stone fruits with vanilla bean accentuation from the French oak barriques that it matures in for 12 months make for a mouth-filling delight. And the fusion of sweetness, spice and deft acidity add even more layers of seductiveness to the impressive wine."
95/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion, November 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"De Bortolis Riverina autumn climate is tailor-made for botrytis, resulting in this exceptionally complex, unctuously sweet wine, acidity providing the all-important balance."
