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”.
Vineyard
The fruit for this wine was sourced from four Estate managed vineyards within the Red
Hill sub-region. The vines have an average age of 20 years and are dry grown in a
volcanic, iron rich soil known as Ferrasol.
Winemaking
The hand-picked fruit was whole bunch pressed and then transferred to barrel on its
lees, where it underwent a barrel fermentation in seasoned French oak.
Approximately 25% of the yeasts used were indigenous. The wine was matured on its
lees in oak for a period of 10 months, prior to being bottled.
Tasting Note
The hallmark of Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay is the fresh grapefruit acidity that
is abundant in this Peninsula Chardonnay and highlights the subtle nuances of
vanilla and ripe peach. The extended finish has noticeable minerality adding to the
complexity.
Serving Suggestion
A perfect match for roasted turbot with a hollandaise sauce or lemon butter Dover
sole.
