De Bortoli Down the Lane range

Australia’s De Bortoli has released a range of wines made with ‘lesser-known’ varieties, inspired by Melbourne’s underground “laneway culture” – whereby historic lanes previously used to transport goods by horse and cart have been transformed into urban artscapes. Created with the aim of capturing the “feel and soul” of the movement, De Bortoli’s ‘Down the Lane’ range comprises four wines made by blending varieties from its Riverina, King Valley and Yarra Valley vineyards.

It includes: a Pinot Grigio/Arneis 2016, made with a touch of Vermentino; a Rosé Gris de Gris 2016 made from Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir grown in Riverina; and a Shiraz/Tempranillo 2015. “Down the Lane is a terrific opportunity to explore varieties that may be better suited to our particular climates and blending for interest and flavour rather the traditional single-variety approach,” says De Bortoli senior winemaker John Coughlan.

RRP: AUS$12 (£8.99).
