Expert Reviews

Quite remarkable... This floral, spicy young shiraz reveals fresh aromas of dark fruits backed by a hint of meatiness, cloves and cinnamon. It's uncomplicated but generous, delivering length, suppleness and a fine-grained, savoury finish. Unlike so many of its competitors, it's actually made in a Rhone-inspired style. Even the river regions can reinvent themselves!Jeremy Oliver, Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine, (01/NOV/2010)

Good purple colour, deep but clear; a prime example of just how much flavour and structure can be obtained from the Riverland; the blackberry fruit of the medium-bodied palate has good texture and structure.Rating 89 - James Halliday, Wine Companion Newsletter (13/OCT/2010)

Deakin Estate has released a trio of reds including a 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, a 2008 Merlot and a 2009 Shiraz. Offering value for money, each of the wines displays personality and are to be consumed when young or cellared for three to five years. Drink Trade Online Magazine (AUG/010)

Deakin Estate produces a good range of wines at less than $10 and this is my pick of them. Aromas of cherry, plum and spice are followed by medium-bodied bright flavours of redcurrants, more plums and raspberries. Fine, subtle tannins and a hint of pepper spice finish off the wine nicely. This is a good, well-priced quaffer. Top Quaffer. 3.5 Stars - Ben Thomas, The Weekly Review (26/JUL/2010)

You want a bottle of red to take to a party, or a local take away? Look no further. This is a fun and flavoursome red wine that will keep you slurping happily on a tight budget. It's a classic Aussie wine with ripe plum and berry flavours, prominent oak aromas and flavours and plenty of length on the palate. Turn up the metal - pick up a pizza.Winsor Dobbin, Sauce, Hobart (23/JUN - 05/JUL 2010)

Winery Tasting Notes


Deep red.


Black plum and mulberries with notes of spicy, vanilla oak and a savoury hint of coffee.


Juicy dark berries abound on the palate with well integrated and balanced spicy oak. A smooth, rounded mouthfeel with good intensity and length.

Food Matching

A rich and delicious accompaniment to this Shiraz would be a traditional Spaghetti bolognaise with warm sourdough to mop up the extra sauce. A roasted rack of lamb would also be great with this wine.

Cellaring Potential

Enjoyed now but may also be cellared up to 4 years.

Winemaking Notes

The wine fermented in sweeping arm Potter fermenters with a pump-over program set for desired colour and tannin extraction. Pressing and Malolactic Fermentation were followed by clarification before the finest parcels were aged in American and French oak barrels. The separate batches were then brought back together to create the lovely resultant blend.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Mildura region was established as an agricultural settlement in the 1880s after Alfred Deakin, a former Prime Minister of Australia, encouraged California’s Chaffey Brothers to bring their irrigation expertise to Mildura. The region subsequently became one of the most productive agricultural areas in Australia specialising in citrus, olives, almonds and grapes.

The Deakin Estate range and the premium Alfred range were named in honour of this visionary, Alfred Deakin.

The Deakin Estate property was purchased in 1967 when vineyards were planted. Initially, the grapes grown were picked and sold as fruit. Wine production on the property did not begin until 1980 when a winery facility was built. Fruit quality and wine production improved and in 1994 Deakin Estate the brand was launched in the United Kingdom. A domestic launch followed with the release of the next vintage.

Deakin Estate vineyard is located at Red Cliffs, near Mildura in the North-West of Victoria. The region has become one of the most productive agricultural areas in Australia.

There are 350 hectares under vine in the Deakin Estate vineyard. Main varieties include Colombard, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot.
