Paringa Estate Estate Series Mornington Peninsula Shiraz 2017

A serious cool climate Shiraz with incredibly focused
aromas of pepper, ink and spice set against fleshy
damson fruit and a silky texture.
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
Cool, windy weather combined with rainfall during the flowering period of 2017 resulted
in millerandage (uneven ripening) and dramatically reduced yields. Flowering took
place two to three weeks later than 2016 which followed through to a later harvest by
two to three weeks. The Shiraz fruit harvested was good quality, with fine natural acidity,
and has delivered wines with good colour and vibrant fruit.
Vineyard
The vineyard is the home block at the Paringa winery. It was first planted by Lindsay
McCall in 1985. The north facing vineyard sits at an altitude of 146 metres above sea
level and the soil is red volcanic, known as Ferrasol which is typical of the region. The
vines are trellised to a split canopy to balance the fertile soil.
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 to extract the desired level of colour, flavour and fine tannins. Post
fermentation, the wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, of which 25%
were new.
Tasting Note
A serious cool climate Shiraz with incredibly focused aromas of pepper, plum and
blackberry. This elegant wine has fine grained tannins, a silky texture and a long
harmonious, savoury finish reflective of its cool climate origin.
