WINE OF THE WEEK: De Bortoli’s 2005 Yarra Valley Chardonnay

DE BORTOLI who started making wines in the Riverina way back in 1928 have achieved wonders since taking over the Yarra Valley’s Chateau Yarrinya in 1987. A recently-released 2005 Chardonnay made from fruit from the family’s exceptional and largely organic vineyards at Dixons Creek in the north of the Valley, is a medium bodied wine with more-ish fig fruit and nutty flavours; pay $27.99 and enjoy with fish or light pasta dishes.
