Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973. Fortuitously placed at the very heart of the Australian west's most illustrious estates, it continued to occupy the thoughts of neighbouring Howard Park's chief winemaker, until he acquired the property and relaunched a softly spoken range of the most exquisite wines. Aspirants of the blue blooded styles from Margaret River will be delighted, redolent reds which bloom with berries and violet cassis, powerfully structured whites with substantial palates and crystalline fruit, chiselled and refined, the..

Lindsay McCall's enthusiasm for great wine began in the 1970s, he established his first Mornington plantings in 1985 on the site of a derelict orchard at Red Hill along Paringa Road. From day one, McCall focused on exactingly managing the soils and the vines, after completing his day job as local school teacher. His affinity for the land and astonishing feel for winemaking produced monumental vintages of Pinot Noir, which propelled the exquisite range of Paringa Estate wines to international renown. McCall works closely with Mornington's finest vignerons to nurture better standards of viticulture and deliver finer vintages with each harvest.

The moderate rainfalls at Argiano serve to barely nourish the vines, promoting healthier ripening while achieving greater concentration and flavours in the finished wine. Neighbouring Monte Amiata is one of Tuscany's highest peas, providing shelter for the fruit and protecting the vines from bad weather. Grapes are all hand picked into shallow crates for transport to the wineworks, individually sorted and transferred to vat fermenters. The clear juices are vinified on skins for two or three weeks for optimum extraction. Upon completion of malolactic, Montalcino is matured in a selection of prior use French oak barrels and larger format Slovenian oak casks before bottling the following autumn.
Intense ruby red colour. Peppery, herbal and vanilla nose, black cherry and jam aromas. Medium bodied with good concentration of fruit in the mid palate, elegant and well balanced with captivating flavours of red berries and violet, menthol and earth, all characteristic of Argiano's unique terroir. A generous wine with smooth and velvety tannins that will please all Sangiovese lovers.
