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. – Description from markomkc

    Snoothrank:

    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 h... Read More

  • Chardonnay Victoria 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Here is the way the web site describes this wine. "this is a fresh and lively little wine with lemon and lime, pineapple and crisp green apple flavours on the palate. The fruit is quite sweet but the finish is refreshingly dry. This is clearly disingenuous marketing speak. This is an off dry wine that is big and fat with nothing refreshing or cr... Read More
