Moorabool Estate Paradise IV Chaumont
Paradise IV Chaumont, Geelong The Paradise IV vineyard site is 2.5 hectares and the varieties grown are Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Paradise IV vintage is always much later than other vineyards in the Geelong region because the site is cooled most summer evenings by south-easterly sea breezes channelling up the Moorabool Valley. This beneficial factor allows flavour development to occur slowly. "Time to add Paradise IV to the list of top Geelong producers"Campbell Mattison, The Winefront. The wines have intensity, perfume and balance they are in a more European style. The vineyard is low-cropped and all fruit is hand-picked. Traditional winemaking techniques are employed with natural ferments and natural malolactic being an integral element of the style and character of the wines. High-quality French oak barrels are selected for use but the style sees the oak disappear into the wines, never dominating them.
La Parde de Haut-Bailly
Originated from the same plots and made with the same winemaking techniques as the first label, La Parde Haut-Bailly is subject to the same draconian selection controls. Over time, it has developed its own personality, displaying a pleasant silky texture on the palate and achieving a style of elegance and refinement . Although its softness and forward aroma mean it can be drunk sooner than Chateau Haut-Bailly, it also has good aging potential.
