Shiraz, 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.

Good punchy Shiraz aromas of mulberry and plum, supported by hints of vanilla and coffee oak. The palate is juicy, spicy and satisfying, with a rounded finish.

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