Delatite

Victoria | Upper Goulburn

James' Review

With its sweeping views across to the snow-clad Alps, this is uncompromising cool climate viticulture. Increasing vine age (the earlier plantings were spread between 1968-82, others between 1984-2011), and the adoption of organic (and partial biodynamic) viticulture, seem also to have played a role in providing the red wines with more depth and texture; the white wines are as good as ever; all are wild-yeast fermented. In 2011 Vestey Holdings Limited, the international pastoral giant, acquired a majority holding in Delatite, and has said it represents one of ‘what we hope will be a number of agricultural businesses here’. Exports to Denmark, China, Japan and Malaysia.

About

Specialising in cool climate wine, Delatite’s winery and vineyards are on rolling hills at the base of Mt Buller in north-east Victoria. It was established in 1968 by Robert and Vivienne Ritchie and now run by their son David.
Our approach to winemaking has been forged from the family’s history of working with the land in Victoria for over 170 years. We’re committed to producing outstanding wines and to biodynamic principles that leave the environment in a better state than when we started.
