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 elite parcels, the artisanal efforts of Paringa Estate are regional icons, weaving the pick of Mornington's fruit into one of our nation's most illustrious..

There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard Vineyard, establishing Brokenwood as one of the most cherished marques in Hunter Valley wine...

Watershed Shades Sauvignon Semillon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
Watershed's vineyards were established within the dress circle of stately Margaret River wineries, at the intersection of Darch Road and Bussell Highway. The climes here are an idyll for holiday makers and alfresco living. They are also heaven sent for viticulture and world class wines. The universally appealing accord of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc is one of the stylistic marvels of Margaret River. Watershed is fresh and vibrant, offering tangy passionfruit and grapefruit characters, clean, lingering and crisp.
Watershed is one of the few major estates in Margaret River with a capacity to assemble the most equitable harvests of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Watershed's viticulturalists were responsible for the single largest initial vineyard planting in the region. With well over a hundred hectares under vine, Watershed is able to isolate the best sites for white grapes, resources which dwarf some of the region's largest boutique vineyards. Following a vintage determined by optimal levels of ripeness and the perfect ratios of fruit sugars to acid, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are crushed and inoculated, vinified at controlled temperatures, followed by assemblage into a classically fruit driven dry white.
Pale straw in the glass. Aromas of lime blossom, lychees and gooseberry, intense citrus, grapefruit and guava bouquets are complemented by the grassyness of Semillon. Fresh and vibrant palate, exhibiting luscious passionfruit characters, tropical fruit flavours leading to a crisp lingering finish. This quenching Margaret River white is deliciously ready to be enjoyed now, excellent in it's youth, a suitable companion to good food, particularly fried fishes or Asian faire.
