A beautifully styled, elegant Chardonnay. Complex and
rich with notes of layered, toasty oak.
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
The 2015 vintage saw excellent growing conditions which resulted in outstanding
fruit. Yields were down by approximately 20% on average; the quality of the fruit was
very high.
Vineyard
The vineyard is set in the classic cool climate sub-region of Red Hill at an altitude of
146 metres above sea-level. This north facing vineyard was one of the first planted by
Lindsay McCall in 1985. The fruit for this wine was sourced from nine rows of the
Paringa single vineyard, situated just next to the cellar door. The soil is the typical red
volcanic soil known as Ferrasol. The vines are trained on a distinctive Lyre or ‘U’ trellis
system which sits on an elaborate steel frame assembly.
Winemaking
The hand-picked fruit was whole bunch pressed and the unclarified juice was
fermented in new, one and two year old French oak barriques. The wine was
matured for 11 months, during which time it was stirred monthly, to build weight and
complexity while retaining the freshness of fruit.
Tasting Note
The bouquet has a complex floral lift of citrus and stone fruit, with some delicate lees
aromas. Cool climate white fleshy stone fruits, citrus notes and savoury nutty oak
flavours characterise the palate. This Chardonnay has a round, textured palate
harmoniously balanced by a fine natural acidity that leads to a long, persistent finish.
Serving Suggestion
A great match with slow roasted pork or a chicken and mushroom pie.
