Paringa Estate The Paringa Single Vineyard Mornington Peninsula Shiraz 2018

A stunning wine with an impressive combination of power
and elegance. Complex with great longevity and majesty.
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 vineyard is set in the classic cool climate sub-region of Red Hill at an altitude of 146
metres above sea-level. This grapes for this wine come from a north facing vineyard on
Paringa Road, which was planted in 1985. The soil is the typical red volcanic soil, known
as Ferrasol. The vines are trained on the distinctive Lyre or ‘U’ trellis system which sits on
an elaborate steel frame assembly.
Winemaking
The hand-picked fruit was 100% destemmed and cold soaked for four days prior to
yeast inoculation. The wine spent a total of 21 days on skins, in open fermenters with
gentle plunging. Post fermentation, the wine was then aged for a period of 18 months
in French oak barrels, of which 50% were new.
Tasting Note
The bouquet shows Paringa’s distinctive savoury plum and spicy, cracked black
pepper aromas. On the palate the rich, spicy plum, blackberry and liquorice
characters combine with fine grained tannins, providing excellent structure, texture
and length.
