De Bortoli Family Vineyard Bianco 2015
More than any other Australian wine company, De Bortoli have shown a willingness to think outside the square and bring us alternative varieties that are high quality, interesting and non expensive.
The Bianco is a blend of Arneis, Pinot Grigio and Trebbiano. These three Northern Italian were planted by the De Bortoli family at Bilbul, some more than 50 years ago. Where the Sangiovese dipped its lid to Chianti, this white is not dissimilar to an Italian Soave - albeit for a fraction of the cost. It is zesty, racy and textural and above all interesting and thought provoking though for ten bucks, I wouldn’t be thinking about it too much as it’s so easily drinkable. The blurb from De Bortoli talks about development over the next 3 to 5 years, I’d be knocking this off over the next 3 to 5 months!
