Artisan's Blend Chardonnay Pinot Grigio

Artisan’s Blend Chardonnay Pinot Grigio

Artisan’s Blend Chardonnay Pinot Grigio from 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.
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.
Taste -This delicious blend combines the citrus and melon character of Chardonnay with savoury and pear notes from the Pinot Grigio. The palate is crisp yet generous, with a moreish finish.

Deakin Estate

“The Deakin Estate property and its wines are named in honour of that visionary, Alfred Deakin.
Purchased in 1967, Deakin Estate was planted to premium wine grapes which were sold as fruit until 1980 when a winery facility was built. By the time the Deakin Estate range was launched in 1994 some vines had achieved considerable age, whilst newer vines were being planted. Their efforts are focused on producing fruit of the highest quality and expressive wines brimming with flavour and varietal character. “
