Paringa Estate Peninsula Mornington Peninsula Shiraz 2016

A subtle hint of violets laces the warm mint chocolate and pepper core. A wonderfully enticing and silky cool climate Shiraz.

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

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. The 2016 harvest took place earlier than recent years, but the grapes show a beautiful balancing acidity.

Vineyard

The fruit comes from the Paringa Estate vineyard in Moorooduc and Sea Vista vineyard on Paringa Road, Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. The vines are aged between 15 and 20 years.

Winemaking

The berries were destemmed and 5% Viognier was co fermented in two tonne open stainless steel fermenters. This was followed by 11 months ageing in French oak barriques, of which approximately 10% were new.

Tasting Note

Spicy, blackberry and plum aromas are complemented by lifted floral notes from a dash of Viognier. Lively blackberry and plum flavours follow on the palate, with hints of black pepper. A wonderfully enticing and elegant cool climate Shiraz with finegrained tannins, a silky texture and a long harmonious, savoury finish.

Serving Suggestion

This works well with a Morrocan influenced tagine or a traditional shepherd's pie.
