The Estate Grown wines from De Bortoli are sourced from their own vineyard at Dixons Creek in the northern section of the Yarra Valley. The grapes are picked from separate sites on the estate, with the first vines planted in 1971. This 200 ha vineyard is nestled into the western slopes facing mainly east and are carefully laid out to match variety and winestyle.
The Estate Vineyard Pinot Blanc is the classic bone dry traditional French style. Its history has close links to Chardonnay and you can see the same sort of fine mineral traits.
A fascinating, lesser seen varietal, and while its been made in old vats and aged on lees, It smells just like a spiced pear and roquette salad. Green pears and peppery leaves, limey citrus acidity, delicacy, texture and length.
