Paradise IV (aka Moorabool Estate vineyard) is located at Batesford, minutes from Geelong in the heart of the Moorabool Valley wine district, on your way to the Bellarine Peninsula, Southern Victoria.

Moorabool Estate is one of the four original Batesford vineyards (est. 1860's) and is now back in business - with new plantings. Once owned by early Swiss migrant J.H. Dardel, the micorbrewery is now under the guidance of Ruth and Graham Bonney, who have their own micro-winery on site.

"As Dardel recognised, it is one of the best wine-growing sites in Geelong, with well-drained slopes and a north-easterly aspect. Shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay thrive in the sandy granite soils. It's a vineyard with a very distinctive terroir (the interaction between soil, climate, aspect and biodiversity), which is expressed in the perfumed, subtle cabernets reminiscent of Chateaux Margaux in Bordeaux, and the peppery, intense shirazes."

"The wines are beautifully balanced, with lively acid and vibrant fruit."

The Age Epicure, 26 July 2005
