Deakin Estate Artisan's Blend Shiraz Viognier 2021
Deakin Estate's family owned vineyards lie near Mildura in the north west of Victoria, Australia. Here, the majestic Murray River weaves across the land, bringing life to the region and to the vineyards. The Artisan's Blend showcases skilful varietal blends from the Estate's own vineyards. Both the Shiraz and Viognier were co-fermented in static red fermenters. Frequent pump overs ensured that the two varieties were evenly distributed through the tank. This enabled the Viognier to release what it contributes most to in the blend - good acidity and palate length. This is an elegant, rich and fruity red wine with rich black cherry flavours, plum, hints of spice and vanilla oak. Perfect with Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding or Peking Duck and spicy noodle dishes.
