Nazaaray Estate Winery Mornington Peninsula
This is single vineyard wine at its best! Nazaaray Estate Winery is Mornington Peninsula’s southernmost vineyard, set on 50 acres in Flinders with sweeping views, wildlife and superb sunsets. Its location and orientation encourage a long, slow ripening season which produces exceptional high-quality fruit, perfect for producing sensational wines.
Nazaaray Estate is owned by winemaker Paramdeep Ghumman and his wife Nirmal, who emigrated to Australia in 1981 from India. Param tasted his first glass of wine on the flight over. Between 1996 and 2000, they successfully established one of the smallest commercial vineyards on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.
The estate follows the fine traditions of artisan winemaking – exemplary viticulture, no irrigation once the vines are established, low yields, hand harvesting, and small batches of handmade wines. Param is one of the few winemakers on the Mornington Peninsula who makes his wine onsite, so the grapes are in perfect condition when they reach the winery immediately after picking. The result is award-winning wines of exceptional quality which are cellared before release. Each wine reflects both its individual terroir and the ideal growing conditions of the Mornington Peninsula’s cool maritime climate.
Hidden rustic gem! A cellar door experience unlike any other! Indeed, Nazaaray is like the ‘secret laneways’ of the Peninsula… everyone knows the big players but here there is the excitement of your own special ‘find’ tucked away.
Wines are available for tasting in the cellar door or on the viewing deck overlooking the estate where kangaroos often bound through the paddocks.
Two vintage 1930s train carriages add a whimsical note. Meet the winemaker, Param, and let him guide you through his latest releases: Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc.
The Nazaaray Estate team loves to prove that Indian food does match with wine. They serve reasonably priced mod Indian warm snacks with a glass of wine. Their quarterly Sunday Tiffin lunches are not to be missed and bring together the Ghumman family’s roots and their new homeland. Bookings essential. (Check website for dates).
