TASTING NOTES
An aromatic wine showing typical Viognier aromas of apricot, honeysuckle and orange peel. The palate is soft and luscious, while retaining good balance and a refreshing finish.

PRODUCER
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.

VINEYARD
The grapes come from vines aged between five and fifteen years, trained on a two-wire vertical trellis and planted at 1,700 vines per hectare on sandy loam soils. They were harvested in early February.

WINERY
The juice was fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures using aromatic yeast. The wine was bottled without oak or malolactic influence to ensure maximum freshness.

PRESS
“This really is a surprise: it has crystal clear varietal character in a stone fruit spectrum (apricot to peach), and has length that is not dependent on phenolics. Terrific value.” – James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, April 2015
