Set high in the Macedon Ranges near Hanging Rock, Woodend, Kyneton and Lancefield, Paramoor Winery is rapidly establishing itself among the very best of the wine producers in this coolest of Australia''s wine making regions. Wine guru James Halliday has included a Paramoor wine in his national ''best of the best'' listings by variety in both his 2009 and 2010 ''Australian Wine Companions''-- the 2006 Paramoor ''The Fraser'' Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot ( 96 points) and the 2008 Paramoor Riesling (95 points). A number of other wines have been awarded between 90 and 93 points-- so, whilst still rated at 4.5 stars, Paramoor is well and truly knocking on the door of the maximum 5 stars!
A wide range of wines are produced including whites (Riesling, Botrytis Riesling, Chardonnay/Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris/Pinot Noir) and reds (Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot). Total production during 2010 is expected to be about 1200 cases.
Paramoor''s farm, accommodation and winery buildings complement its beautiful bush scenery in a unique fashion. The property''s history, prior to purchase by the current owners, Will and Kathy Fraser, was as a working Clydesdale horse farm. Two of the original Clydesdales remain, as well as a wide array of horse drawn carts, ploughs and mowers. The heritage nineteenth century style barn is one of a kind, providing room for a blacksmith''s forge. a tack room and various stalls. It is in this amazing space that Paramoor has sited its cellar door sales area.
Many musical concerts are held each year in the barn, including by the Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Victoria, the Victorian Harp Society as well as a monthly Celtic and Australian folk music evening.Visit Website
