Delatite

Victoria | Upper Goulburn

Our Review

With its sweeping views across to the snow-clad alps, this is uncompromising cool-climate viticulture. Increasing vine age (the earlier plantings were between 1968–82, others between ’84–2011) and the adoption of organic (and partial biodynamic) viticulture, have also played a role in providing the red wines with more depth and texture. The white wines are all wild-yeast fermented and are as good as ever. In ’11, Vestey Holdings Limited, the international pastoral giant, acquired a stake in Delatite. Exports to the UK and Japan. -JAMES HALLIDAY

About

Delatite was established in 1968 by the Ritchie family and we continue to grow and make delicious wines that combine provenance and experience. Located at the base of the high country, we are committed to making wine as naturally as possible; to let the vineyard and grapes express their true characters. We are excited to share our commitment of crafting natural, sustainable, organic and biodynamic wines in our new cellar door with the aim of becoming carbon neutral by 2025.

Food

Information

Delatite has just opened a state of the art, multimillion dollar cellar door and dining room. The menu is casual yet considered. It reflects the seasons, using local suppliers where possible and if not, suppliers that align with their values. Fruit, vegetables and herbs are tended to in our permaculture gardens; we envisage chefs dashing from the kitchen to select the freshest of ingredients directly from the garden.
