Producer Note
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”.
Vintage
Warm and dry conditions through flowering ensured good berry set. Average
temperatures during February and March provided long and even ripening and
allowed for fruit to be picked at optimal maturity. It was one of the best ever vintages
in the history of Paringa Estate. The fruit was picked on 22nd April.
Vineyard
The vineyard is the home block at the Paringa winery. It was first planted by Lindsay
McCall in 1985. The north facing vineyard sits at an altitude of 146 metres above sea
level and the soil is red volcanic, known as Ferrasol, and is typical of the region. The
vines are trellised to a split canopy to balance the fertile soil.
Winemaking
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 fermenters
with gentle plunging. Post fermentation, the wine was aged for 18 months in French
oak barrels, of which 70% were new.
Tasting Note
A serious cool climate Shiraz with incredibly focused aromas of pepper, ink and spice
set against damson fruit and silky almost pinot-esque texture. A long life ahead and
one of Australia's finest examples of cool climate Shiraz.
Serving Suggestion
This charming wine is a great choice with Turkish influenced grilled lamb or Welsh
