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
2018 saw excellent weather during the flowering period and an almost perfect fruit set,
which resulted in the best potential crop for many years. Summer temperatures were
consistent and mild, without any heat spikes, which continued with fine weather during
the harvest. 2018 was characterised by very good yields of excellent quality, across all
varieties, and was one of Paringa Estates’ best vintages of the last 30 years.
Vineyard
The fruit comes from the Paringa Estate vineyard in Moorooduc and Sea Vista vineyard
on Paringa Road, Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. The vines are aged between 15
and 20 years.
Winemaking
The berries were destemmed and 5% Viognier was co fermented in two tonne open
stainless steel fermenters. This was followed by 11 months ageing in French oak
barriques, of which approximately 10% were new.
