Cracka Review

Want a fizz that won’t blow your budget but will deliver amazing flavour and keep your friends animated? The Deakin Estate could be just what you are looking for. It’s the classic combo of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to create a wine that is easy to drink with a delicate core of citrus and a subtle yeast influence. This is the kind of fizz you sink with ease before dinner or partner with salmon canapés.

Winemaker's Notes

Deakin Estate Brut, a blend of classic sparkling varieties Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, is the perfect pre-dinner starter or a great way to celebrate any occasion.  A delicate and fresh bubbly, we'd love you to give it a try.

Colour: Pale straw with a deliciously fine bead.

Nose: Elegant and complex with lemon, light malt and fresh bread aromas.

Palate: Bright acidity balanced by a creamy, malty body with fresh lemon, Camembert and bready flavours and a good lengthy finish. A fine persistent mousse.

Good mousse with a quite fine bead; clean, fresh chardonnay stone fruit and citrus to the fore; well balanced; a surprise; Chardonnay/Pinot Noir.

As is often the case, Deakin is performing better than you'd expect for a Murray-Darling producer. There's intense yeastiness here, and a lively, fresh, zesty mid-palate before a bright, crisp finish.

Gosh for under ten bucks this is extremely well put together. It's really quite delicate. Hugely fizzy. Flavours of lemon and yeast. Made with chardonnay and pinot noir – mostly chardonnay. Bursts with flavour through the finish. Freshness but a good amount of yeastiness too. Huge value. Made in tank rather than method champenoise, but for quaffing who's counting. Nice and dry. That's what I really like here - the dryness. It's like the Mildura soils. But then it bursts, crisp and clean and flavoursome, as it leaves your mouth.
