Paringa Estate Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir 2014 Magnum

A breathtaking Pinot with an extraordinary velvety
texture and elegant power enhanced by savoury and
leather notes, reminiscent of top Chambolle Musigny.


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
The 2014 vintage saw excellent growing conditions which resulted in outstanding
fruit. Yields were down by approximately 20% on average; the quality of the fruit was
very high.


Vineyard
The vineyard is set in the classic cool climate subregion of Red Hill at an altitude of
146 metres above sea level. The Pinot Nor vines are aged between 15 and 22 years;
six clones are planted each with subtle characteristics which impart complexity to
the resulting wine. The soil is a deep red volcanic clay that allows dry farming,
without irrigation. Founder, Lindsay McCall, still tends to the vineyard characterised
by its 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
the yeast inoculation. The wine spent a total of 21 days on skins in open stainless
steel fermenters with gentle plunging. Post fermentation, the wine was aged for 11
months in French oak barrels, of which 35% were new.


Tasting Note
A breath-taking Pinot Noir with extraordinary texture, elegance and poise. Classic
aromas of red and dark cherries mingle with hints of spice. The palate is structured
yet elegant with excellent fruit weight and firm tannins. The long, complex, savoury
finish is characteristic of this excellent 2015 vintage.
