Expert Reviews

This wine is always worth a look and this release is a strong one. Its core flavour is impressive. Plums, blackberry, cola and clove notes. Juicy throughout well shaped through the finish. Remarkable value. 91 points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2015, 30 July 2014

Deakin Estate Shiraz routinely puts the value equation far in its favour. This is a terrific release. It's worthy of some good glassware. Plums, cherries, cola and crushed dry spice/clove. You'd almost call this mouth-filling, which at this price is quite something. Perfectly made. Presentation of flavour is excellent. Rating 90 - Campbell Mattinson, Winefront, 18 March 2014

Deakin Estate's parent company is Spanish Cava behemoth Freixenet, which knows a lot about making big quantities of well-priced wine. Some has rubbed off onto Deakin. With plum, raspberry, blackberry, spice and wet stone aromas, it's got a lot going for it. Things get better in the mouth, with bright red berry, cola, cocoa and spice flavours, fine grippy tannins and refreshment to the lengthy finish. Food match: Braised sausages and lentils Ben Thomas, The Weekly Review (JUN/2014)

New vintage of this crowd favourite shows aromas of smoky vanilla, burnt embers, black cherry with delicate herbal notes and super mellow vanilla-laced cherry and blueberry pie flavours. Totally succulent fruit! Food suggestion: Banquet burgers. 89+ points Gord Stimmell,, 08 May 2014

Winery Tasting Notes


Deep, vibrant red.


Rich berry fruit including blackberries and mulberries with oak notes of malt, almond and mocha.


Rich and juicy with ripe dark berry flavours and well-balanced oak. The palate shows good structure with medium tannins and a lingering finish.

Cellaring Potential

Best enjoyed now but may be cellared for up to four years to add more chocolaty, aged notes if desired.

Ideal Food Matches

Try an oven baked lasagne or a hearty beef and stout pie, a roasted rack of lamb or an aged sirloin topped with a red wine jus.

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.
