Tasting notes - The wine has rich powerful aromas of spice and dark cherry, combined with charry oak, secondary barrel ferment mocha and coffee characters, that will integrate further to become more Burgundian like with bottle age. On the palate the wine has rich ripe fruit, firm fine grained tannins helping provide excellent texture and length. This wine will live for 15 to 20 years. 

 

Paringa Estate The Paringa Single Vineyard Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir 2018

Intense and fragrant aromas of spice and coffee
combined with strawberry and violet notes over a
beautifully silky texture. Sublime Pinot Noir expression.
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
This vineyard is known as "The Home Block" as it sits next to the cellar door and dates
back to 1985. It is north facing with at an altitude of 146 metres above sea level. The soil
is the typical red volcanic soil, known as Ferrasol.
Winemaking
The hand-picked fruit was 100% destemmed and cold soaked for four days before
yeast inoculation. The wine spent a total of 14 days on skins in open fermenters with
gentle plunging. Post fermentation the wine was then aged for 10 months in French
oak barrels.
Tasting Note
The wine has rich powerful aromas of spice and dark cherry, combined with charry
oak, secondary barrel ferment mocha and coffee characters. On the palate the wine
has rich ripe fruit, firm fine grained tannins providing excellent texture and length.
