Of all the other Australian wine regions, only Margaret River and the Bellarine Peninsula of Geelong can lay claim to such a profoundly maritime climate. In this part of the world, the wind is usually blowing from somewhere and generally either from the north and west across Port Phillip Bay or from the south and east across Bass Strait. That the climate is cool is not in dispute; exactly how cool is strongly dependent on site and aspect.

  • Paringa Shiraz 2013


    Attractively perfumed on the nose with floral aromas of violet and white flowers leading to measured tones of cocoa and vanilla, some dried herbal notes, hints of roast beef and black berry fruit. Rich, a touch chewy, but fresh in the mouth with a gentle softness that makes this both bold and yet supple in the mouth. the flavors are a touch mud... Read More
