Re-Write The Rules Tempranillo
Medium colour. Perfume of blue and red fruits. Aromas of charcuterie, earth and spice. Spicy, grainy, swooningly aromatic, rich and plump with violets and a bit of crunch.
Alc/Vol: 14.5%, pH: 3.60 TA: 5.8 g/L
Paella, tapas, Manchego cheese.
Fruit destemmed with a small addition of whole bunches. 10-14 days of maceration and fermentation at warm temperatures. Pressed, settled overnight and filled to small and larger casks for about 6 months. 2020 was a cool season with timely rainfall. Lovely ripening conditions during Autumn.
The wine will continue to develop complexity and interest with good cellaring for 3-5 years.

"Deep ruby with a touch of brick red at the edge. Blood plum, cinnamon and dark earth aromas. Ultra-ripe and sweet black fruits on entry, vanilla bean and wood shavings linger through the core as well whilst supple tannins bring some tension."
The Real Review October 2023
"De Bortoli’s take on this Spanish varietal will have wide appeal. It is soft, round and medium to full-bodied with surprising underlying power. It has spicy, black cherry flavours with some savoury notes before a long, lingering finish. Good value, too."
Money Magazine November 2022
"Brilliant appealing aromatic bouquet. Delicious spicy palate with a hint of savouriness & tight drying finish making it a fabulous food wine-especially with rich Mediterranean dishes. READY TO BE ENJOYED NOW"
Dan Traucki (Twitter) July 2022
"This fruit-driven De Bortoli has 14.5% alcohol, purple-tinted crimson hues, gamey aromas and plush mulberry front palate flavour. The middle palate shows Morello cherry, spearmint, briar and coconutty oak and the finish has chalky tannins. It would go well with tapas. 4/6 stars"
Central Western Daily July 2022
"Deep garnet with bright edges. Plump blueberry and cherry fruit with rich grated chocolate, meaty charcuterie/fresh biltong depth, purple flowers and a hint of dried herbs. Mid weight with silky front palate, gliding through to food friendly acid bite and easy tannin grip. The quality of fruit and winemaking is on show."
Vinonotebook July 2022
"De Bortoli’s ‘Re-write the rules’ is about finding wine that your taste buds actually love and breaking free from stereotypes with these two new wines that have their own distinct character."
