Deen Vat Shiraz 2017, a dark horse!
THE DEEN VAT SERIES WAS CREATED BY DEEN DE BORTOLI, A TRUE PIONEER IN AUSTRALIAN WINEMAKING.
This range is all about delicious, full-flavoured wines at an affordable price. Deen personally selected the blends and identified these by chalking the numbers on the vats. The Vat Series includes a traditional selection, as well as wines made from newer varieties to Australia. These wines are made with passion and are a true reflection of Deen himself.
It is very fitting that the Deen Vat Shiraz has been selected by Decanter Magazine staff has one of the most exciting wines of 2019. From the hundred (even maybe thousands!) of wines tasted by freelancers and journalists this year, only 60 wines made it to the final list and ours was selected as being a great value for money wine.
We are very pleased that this unassuming but over-delivering Shiraz caught the 'judges' attention. It is described as 'really meaty and savoury, backed by a core of ripe blackberries. Exceptional concentration and silky tannins lead to a long finish.' and holding its own very well, ranking at No32 amongst much more expensive wines.
