Established 1967, Deakin Estate sold their harvests until a winery was built in 1980. Many of the vines have now achieved considerable age, but the team's efforts remain focused on producing fruit of the highest quality and wines brimming with flavour. A brightly lit, fruit forward Sauvignon Blanc that's best enjoyed young for its zesty, youthful freshness. Classic food accompaniements are oysters and goat's cheese but shellfish and chicken asparagus would also be a great match.
Sauvignon Blanc is harvested from the Deakin Estate vineyard at Red Cliffs near Mildura in the sunny Murray Darling. The vignerons monitor their vines very closely throughout the ripening period, as the decision of when to pick is critical to the quality of the finished wine. The challenge is to fashion a Sauvignon Blanc that's herbaceous and just moving into the sub tropical characters, a brilliant, fresh and pungent place to be. Cold fermentations, a careful selection and finishing are all that follows, getting the time of picking just right is crucial and the rest comes naturally.
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw with a fresh lime green tinge. A fully herbaceous nose with characters of fresh rocquet and coriander leaf, followed by lime and kiwifruit aromas. Delicious and savoury on the palate, Deakin Estate is decidedly fruity, light bodied and zingy, with lemongrass and lime, feijoa and kiwifruit. Generously flavoured zesty and styled, a brilliant match to Thai recipes featuring coriander seeds or kaffir lime.

More About Deakin Estate Winery
The Mildura region was transformed from an arid and scrubby no-man's land to an agricultural oasis in the 1880's
Deakin Estate vineyard and winery complex is at Red Cliffs, near Mildura in the Murray Valley of North West Victoria. 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. Deakin Estate»
