Deakin Estate Shiraz Australia 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fresh on the nose, slightly reduced and a bit stemmy/herbal in nature, this does offer up simple, clean cracked pepper and red plum aromas. A bit lighter bodied than most but well-balanced and fresh feeling with well-judged tannins and almost juicy acidity accentuating the core of plummy fruit. There's a lovely hint of spice here and again an herbal nuance on the palate that recalls the nose. With air the fruit gains some darker aspects but the appeal here for me is the freshness in the mouth and the decidedly medium-bodied feel. A nuance of toasty marshmallow appears on the back end and some gentle streaks of oak pop on the finish but the oak is well-used here. Easy drinking bistro styled wine. 84pts

The Mildura region was transformed from an arid, scrubby, no man's land, to an agricultural oasis in the 1880's. Alfred Deakin, a former Prime Minister of Australia, encouraged California's Chaffey Brothers to bring their irrigation expertise to the vast inland valley of the Murray River in North West Victoria. Since then the region has become one of Australia's most productive and prosperous sources of high quality produce including citrus, olives, almonds and grapes. The Deakin Estate property and its wines are named in honour of that visionary, Alfred Deakin. Purchased in 1967, Deakin Estate was planted to premium wine grapes which were sold as fruit until 1980 when a winery facility was built. By the time the Deakin Estate range was launched in 1994 some vines had achieved considerable age, whilst newer vines were being planted. Our efforts are focused on producing fruit of the highest quality and expressive wines brimming with flavour and varietal character. Read less

A multidimensional wine with layers of plum, chocolate and distinct shriaz heat. Fairly well balanced on the palette. May improve with age. Good value.
