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.

Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand plunged in the old world way, appreciatively unfiltered for.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»
An Irish cobbler named Reilly settled into the tiny Clare Valley township of Mintaro circa 1856. He converted a stone barn into a homestead cottage.

Watershed Shades Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Margaret River makes bold, flavoursome Chardonnay wines, offering a weight of fruit that drinks brilliantly without being aged or exposed to oak. A conspicuous wine show competition champion, judiciously medium bodied, fragrant with grapefruits and honey dew, kept vital and fresh in modern unwooded styling. The profound richness of natural Chardonnay fruit is upfront and central, lingering at the finish on the toothsome varietal characters of fresh fresh cut melons, tangerines and peach.
The growing conditions around Watershed's vineyards, right at the atrium of the dynamic Margaret River appellation, are considered ideal for the production of exuberant Chardonnay wines. Grapes are harvested to healthy levels of baume, exhibiting excellent concentration and clean acids. To retain all the natural assertiveness and intensity of flavour, Shades is treated to a pristine vinification, unwooded and unoaked.
Bright straw hue. A classic varietal Chardonnay bouquet of peaches, melons and citrus. On the palate vibrant notes of stonefruit are complemented by fresh grapefruit characters before a slightly nut infused, soft finish and creamy finish. Shades should be enjoyed right now alongside chicken or Vietnamese faire.
