Gulf Station made available to indies

Australian wine firm De Bortoli is to export its Gulf Station Chardonnay to the UK this year.

The wine joins a range of Chardonnays produced by the firm under its Willowglen, Deen De Bortoli Vat 7 and Yarra Valley Estate Grown labels.

Winemaker Steve Webber is on a mission to demonstrate that Australia can produce elegant Chardonnays to rival the Old World.

Mark Wilson, general manager for UK national accounts, said: “We have been steadily increasing the range that we bring to the UK and hope to show that great Aussie Chardonnay can be found.”
