Expert Reviews

"Flashy and refined"

Quality Aussie fizz that picked up a gold medal at last week's Decanter World Wine Awards. A blend of chardonnay (75%) and pinot noir (25%), much of it older material, flashy and refined with bready notes on the nose, lemony fruit flavours, a fine persistent bead and a creamy finish.

"One of the best value-for-money wine "

A few months back I raved about the current release Deakin cabernet which is one of the best value-for-money wines on the market this year. Well, this easy-drinking sparkler has just laid claims to sit alongside it, winning a gold medal at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards in the under $12 category. A nice find bead, slightly creamy and with some citrus crispness, it's terrific value.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale straw with a deliciously fine bead.

Aroma

Elegant and complex with lemon, light malt and fresh bread aromas.

Palate

Bright acidity balanced by a creamy, malty body with fresh lemon, Camembert and bready flavours and a good lengthy finish. A fine persistent mousse.

Cellaring Potential

There is no need to bottle age this wine as complexities have already evolved. Serve chilled.

Food Matching

All lovely occasions require lovely bubbles… anywhere, anytime. You’d do well to serve it with crusty Italian bread and good olive oil or a nice soft cheese like Havarti or Camembert. And it would be divine with a baked

cheesecake or crème caramel.

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.
