De Bortoli has extended its popular La Bohème range of wines, with the addition of La Bohème Cuvée Rosé.
A passion project of De Bortoli Wines’ rosé aficionados Leanne De Bortoli and Steve Webber, the Cuvée Rosé is kept as pale and dry as possible and blended in batches or cuvées using vintage and reserve wines.
De Bortoli said: “This gives consistency to each bottling and enables the introduction of fresher wine over time for ultimate drinkability and complexity.
“Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier shape the wine, with Chardonnay giving the lovely breadiness, Pinot contributing toasty biscuit characteristics and Meunier giving generosity and complexity.”
This blend is made up of 45 per cent 2016, 2017 and 2018 vintage wines to which 55 per cent Reserve wine dating back to 2010 is added. Its varietal composition is 80 per cent Chardonnay, 15 per cent Pinot Noir and five per cent Pinot Meunier.
It is available now with a $21.95 RRP.
