Delatite is a small family run vineyard and winery at the base of Mt Buller in Vict`oria’s High Country with the main vineyard planted in 1968 and the winery established in 1982.
David and Catherine’s families have farmed in Australia since the early 19th century and they’re committed to following Biodynamic principles and sustainable agricultural practices.
Since 2009 they’ve only used wild yeasts across all wines, all the white grapes have been whole bunch pressed whilst a portion of all of the whites spend time in old oak puncheons.
In 2014 a new limited range of wines is to be released ‘High Ground’ that utilises fruit from both Delatite and the surrounding High Country regions whilst the Estate and Reserve ranges will continue to be made only with 100% Estate Grown fruit.
The James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion has named Delatite a 5 Red Star Winery for the past 7 years and all of our current wines awarded 90+ points
