Deakin Estate Brut, a blend of classic sparkling varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, is the perfect pre-dinner starter or a great way to celebrate any occasion. A delicate and fresh bubbly, we'd love you to give it a try.

Good mousse; sets the pace at this price, with good stone fruit flavours; a dry finish does not shorten the finish.Rating 87 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011
Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with a fine bead and a nice rim of foam.
It’s all about delicacy and complexity with this style. I see notes of aged pear, custard apple, Camembert, warm apple pie and others, each one playing just a small part but also combining with force.
Generous in the mid palate and crisp and clean on the finish, this wine is a creamy-rich ball of fruit, which kind-of melts slowly away.
Best enjoyed young.
Classic varieties, early picking, gentle processing of exclusively free run juice, good attention to juice composition and clarity, cold and slow fermentation with classic sparkling wine yeast and then extended yeast lees aging – these were the hallmarks of our base wine production. Delicacy and freshness resulted. The different varietal parcels were blended and a ‘reserve’ volume included for depth and complexity. Then a second fermentation was initiated to naturally charge the wine with it fizz and to bring everything into harmony.
