Tasting notes - A slightly richer style than the Peninsula Chardonnay with more weight and texture from the French oak barrels used. The honeyed notes are more prominent and the ripe peach and lemon balm notes are offset by the typical, lifted acidity. A definite wine to be enjoyed with food.

An elegant and textured style of Chardonnay, with rich
honey, lanolin and lemon balm notes complemented
by layers of spice and toasty oak.
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”.
This is sourced from estate grown fruit only, from the home block at the cellar door
and the neighbouring vineyard leased by Paringa. The 20 to 25 year old vines are
grown in the typical red volcanic, iron-rich soil known as Ferrasol.
The hand picked fruit was whole-bunched pressed and racked to tank. It was then
barrel fermented in French oak, of which 30% was new. Approximately 30% of the
yeast was indigenous. No malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was
matured in barrel maturation on its lees for a period of 10 months, during which the
barrels were stirred fortnightly.

Sublime with black cod with miso or chicken milanese.
