5 Star Review of Paradise IV Winery by James Halliday

The former Moorabool Estate has been renamed Paradise IV for the very good reason that it is the site of the original Paradise IV Vineyard, planted in 1848 by Swiss vigneron Jean-Henri Dardel. It is owned by Ruth and Graham Bonney. The vineyard is planted on decomposed granite over limestone, an ideal structure. The winery has an underground barrel room, and the winemaking turns around wild yeast fermentation, natural mlf, gravity movement of the wine and so forth. Read more...

Doug Neal and Ruth and Graham Bonney have transformed the rebirth of what began as Moorabool Estate into one of the most inspiring labels in Victorian wine: Paradise IV. Largely based around shiraz, the vineyard's collection of reds marries pure, beautifully presented fruit with fine, appropriately seasoned oak and the finest, crunchiest of tannin backbones - all at old-fashioned modestly alcoholic strengths. The wines are rustic, unashamedly reductive and deliciously complex, delivering a line of purity and elegance before a finish of length and refinement. They will help to redefine Australian shiraz into the next decade and beyond.

Time to add Paradise IV to the list of top Geelong producers. Indeed if Bannockburn, By Farr, Farr Rising, Lethbridge, Curlewis and Paradise IV got together and put the region's best foot forward as a collective, they would redefine opinion of the region.

The new premium Paradise IV brand is producing some of the most exciting reds in the region with the Dardel IV evoking justified comparisons with the best northern Rhone Syrah.
