Steve Webber - "one of the pioneers of Australian Chardonnay" and great scoring wines - by Jancis Robinson | 12.10.15

Jancis Robinson has given some fantastic scores to several of De Bortoli's Yarra Valley wines and describes Steve Webber as one of the “pioneers of Australian Chardonnay”.. For the full article see: http://www.jancisrobinson.com/articles/australia-a-compilation

Yarra Valley Single Vineyard Section A5 Chardonnay 2012

Score of 17

"...Solid and savoury. Lots to chew on with real substance and ageing potential..." 

Yarra Valley Estate Grown Chardonnay 2013

Score of 16.5

"...Very beautifully constructed. Great balance and transparency. Just hits the palate with the most lovely balance. More accessible than some but what else could you want from a Chardonnay to drink in 2015? Maybe not dense but delightfully ethereal. I would LOVE to show this blind with some top village white Pulignys."

Yarra Valley Estate Grown Pinot Noir 2013

Score of 16.5

"Such fineness and delicacy - yet still delivering power on the palate: cranberry, redcurrant and black tea."

Riorret The Abbey 2012

Score of 16

"Marzipan, cherry, fine delicate lines and a light finish..."

PHI Chardonnay 2012

Score of 16

"..Smoky reductive nose. Masses of acidity and stoniness. Quite evolved. Some interest. Bone dry and something to chew on."
