Merlot, Deakin Estate, Australia


Deakin Estate is a substantial family-owned vineyard and winery located in the Mildura region of north-west Victoria. The property was purchased in 1967 and named in honour of Alfred Deakin, a former Australian Prime Minister who pioneered irrigation in this arid region. Fed by the mighty Murray River, Mildura continues to produce high-quality citrus fruit, olives, almonds … and grapes. The fruit from Deakin Estate’s 350 hectares of vineyards was sold off until 1980, when the winery was built. This allows the best grapes to stay in-house, yielding a range of delicious, stylish, value-for-money wines.

Tasting Notes

A fine range of typical Merlot aromas here, from cherry and blueberry to fruitcake and herbal notes. The palate is soft but still structured, with cherry and chocolate flavours to the fore.

The grapes come from vines aged between five and fifteen years.
