Lindsay and Margaret McCall began their incredible journey in 1984, with the purchase of a derelict orchard on Paringa Road at Red Hill. Their requirements included north facing slopes, a permanent running creek and adequate wind protection. The vines were established to a distinctly unique Lyre or U trellis system, employing an elaborate steel frame assembly. The site is now producing harvests of Mornington Peninsula's finest fruit. Bunches of Shiraz are destemmed into traditional, two tonnes open top fermenters. Upon completion, batches are racked to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for eighteen months maturation.
Purple scarlet colour. The distinctive cracked black pepper/ spice characters of Shiraz, plums, brambleberry and notes of cassis. On the palate, spicy blackberry and plum fruit flavours are supported by a length of firm yet soft, fine grained tannins. This is one of Mornington's finest renderings of Shiraz, a wine that will continue to evolve, yet can be enjoyed young alongside the finest cuisine.
