Paringa Estate Mornington Peninsula Shiraz 2016

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”.

After a winter of moderate rainfall and temperatures, the vines moved steadily to
flowering. October was dry with no significant rainfall. Sunny conditions in spring
resulted in good capfall and fruit set. The ripening period saw consistently warm days
without heat spikes and as a result the vines reached maturity and sugar ripeness
early. Harvest took place earlier than recent years, but the grapes show a beautiful
balancing acidity.

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, and is typical of the region. The
vines are trellised to a split canopy to balance the fertile soil.

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.
