The fruit for this wine was harvested from our Deakin Estate vineyards in the Murray Darling region of North West Victoria.

The 2012 Deakin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented over the course of one week in sweeping arm Potter fermenters followed by Malolatic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. It was then matured on premium toasted French and American oak to add complexity and structure before final blending.

Very appealing to drink now, this wine will improve with medium term cellaring (up to 3 years). An excellent accompaniment to red meat dishes, pasta and cheeses.

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.
