Yarra Valley, with its lush hills and misty valleys, is one of Australia’s premium wine regions, known for its diverse terroir and climate that support both classic and emerging wine varieties.

De Bortoli Wines has a proven track record of crafting premium wines in the Yarra Valley that reflect the region’s true essence.

Meet De Bortoli’s newest sparkling additions from the Yarra Valley – the Este Cuvée, the De Bortoli Sparkling Pinot Noir and the Nebbiolo Fizz. The new sparkling wine masterpieces that not only reflect the distinctive characteristics of the Yarra Valley; but are also poised to delight wine enthusiasts seeking traditional wines with a modern twist.

Crafted from a delicious mix of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Meunier, the Este Cuvée has flavours that dance on the palate. What truly sets Este Cuvée apart is its wine blend. The blend boasts an average age of 5 years, spanning over 13 vintages from 2010 to 2022, each year capturing the essence of the Yarra Valley’s unique climate and character, inviting you to savour the story in every glass.

The De Bortoli Sparkling Pinot Noir with its very pale blush colour and super fine bead, is crafted from fruits selected from low-yielding mature vines and fermented separately across 5 months on fine lees before undergoing secondary fermentation. The blend is then assembled using a mix of vintages that embody the essence of Yarra Valley’s vibrancy and freshness.

Meticulously crafted, Nebbiolo Fizz with its pale pink hue, delicate fizz and a moody Blanc de Noir ambiance is a refreshing sparkling wine that exudes an irresistible charm. Chief Winemaker, Steve Webber says, “Everyone expects a full bodied red with Nebbiolo – but this is a delicious sparkling wine with the slightest hint of pink. A very interesting style of wine, really.”

These exceptional bubbly options come in De Bortoli’s proprietary sparkling bottles, proudly made in Australia, designed to be the epitome of old world inspiration meeting new world artistry. The latest sparkling wine trio accurately capture the edgy sophistication of Yarra Valley, whilst also reflecting the region’s finesse and fruit-driven excellence.
