Located in the heart of Victoria’s beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Paringa Estate was founded in 1984 by Lindsay McCall when he purchased a derelict orchard. Lindsay’s passion and fascination with wine began in the mid 1970s and by the mid 1980s he decided to follow his dream by establishing Paringa Estate. The first vintage was in 1988 with just three tonnes of fruit and over the years it has grown considerably, with production now at 16,000 cases. Paringa Estate is one of the most highly awarded boutique wineries in Australia, regularly winning trophies for its Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The collection includes a stunning and precise Pinot Gris, as Lindsay says anywhere capable of growing great Pinot Noir should be capable of growing great Pinot Gris. The wines pay homage to Burgundy in style and James Halliday says Paringa Estate is “one of the best, if not the best, wineries on the Peninsula”.
Good winter and early spring rainfall recharged soil moisture at the start of the growing season providing the vines a good start. However exceptionally cold and windy conditions in late October and early November during flowering resulted in poor fruit set, with the MV6 Pinot Noir clone being the most affected. The Pinot Noir yields were very low, however the wine displays great colour, concentrated flavours and excellent quality.
Grown in three vineyards in the Mornington Peninsula, the Pinot Nor vines are aged between 15 and 22 years. Six clones are planted. The soil on all three vineyards is a deep red volcanic clay that allows dry land growing, without irrigation.
The hand picked fruit was 100% destemmed and cold soaked for four days prior to the yeast inoculation. The wine spent a total of 21 days on skins in open stainless steel fermenters with gentle plunging. Post fermentation, the wine was aged for 11 months in French oak barrels, of which 40% were new.
