A classic Aussie shiraz, with eye catching packaging and a great price too. This is a medium bodied Shiraz that shows vibrant redcurrants and dark cherry flavours, showing a hint of sweetness. Smooth, soft oak tannins finishing with peppery spice.

Made by De Bortoli, one of Australia's leading family owned wineries, The Accomplice is a range of value-driving wines from Riverina and South Eastern Australia. The parcels of Shiraz were selected by the winemaker for their fresh berry characteristics which are notable in this wine style. Wine was fermented on skins for five to seven days at 20-24C with American oak.

Country Of Origin: Australia

The De Bortoli family story is one of determination and triumph that started nearly 90 years ago in war-torn Europe and is now told, generations later, across Australia.

A love-struck Italian couple fleeing war-ravaged Italy are at the foundations of an Australian winemaking dynasty that has produced some of Australia’s most iconic and best-loved wines.

Vittorio De Bortoli journeyed from Castelcucco to New South Wales and the following year arrives in Griffith (formally known as Bagtown). The flat plains and red earth are very different to the hills of Treviso. Giuseppina arrives in Australia the next year and is reunited with her fiancee Vittorio. Vittorio purchases a 55 acre mixed fruit farm. That year there is a glut of shiraz grapes, many farmers see it cheaper to let them rot but Vittorio takes them for free and crushes 15 tonnes of shiraz grapes. Local Italians and other European workers in the area offer to buy wine off him. De Bortoli Wines is born. The next year, Vittorio and Giuseppina get married on the farm.

Many years and generations later, Vittorio and Giuseppina’s granddaughter Leanne De Bortoli and husband, winemaker Stephen Webber, establish the De Bortoli Yarra Valley Estate and in time become inaugural members of Australia’s First Families of Wine.
