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 at 11 Baumé in January.

The juice was fermented slowly at cool temperatures using classic sparkling wine yeast. Ten percent of barrel-aged reserve wine was added to the blend, before the secondary fermentation and extended lees ageing.

Deakin Estate

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.
