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. Limited yields of..

Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial.. Bounty of bendigo goldfields»

Wirra Wirra Catapult Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Viognier McLaren Vale South Australia
The late, great Greg Trott, patriarch of Wirra Wirra, saw many of his unusual dreams realised, such as the construction of a cyclopean fence which girts the entrance of the wineworks. One consuming vision however continued to elude him, the building of a medieval siege machine called a trebuchet. Why? To use as a catapult for bombing neighbouring properties with bottles of wine in the hope they would retaliate! A splendid, opulent rendering of Shiraz, brimming with intense fruit, a hint of varietal spice and a touch of Viognier to be different, just like Trotty.
Available by the dozen

The Catapult style is bright and juicy with textural tannins and plump fruit. A mostly Shiraz wine with a dollop of the aromatic Viognier, grown to superlative sites at Blewitt Springs, McLaren Flat and Seaview. A small inclusion of Viognier is crushed, de-stemmed and cold soaked along with Shiraz for two or three days, extracting maximum colour and flavour without the influence of alcohol. Each ferment is tasted daily throughout vinification. Once the desired level of colour, flavour and tannin are extracted, ferments are pressed into a combination of French oak hogsheads and barriques. Upon completion of malolactic, wines are rack and returned every four months, bottled after a year to fifteen months maturation.
Vivid red, brilliant purple edge. Lifted bouquet of musk, ginger spice and bright blueberry fruits with notes of ripe cherry and raspberry. Touches of cedary oak and some complex pine needle and herbal nuances add to the appeal of the bouquet. Juicy sweet fruit floods the palate with plum and blueberry dominating. The soft silkyness is enhanced by fine tannins, flavoursome with wonderful joie de vivre, a wine of vibrant character.
