Tasting notes - A slightly richer style than the Peninsula Chardonnay with more weight and texture from the French oak barrels used. The honeyed notes are more prominent and the ripe peach and lemon balm notes are offset by the typical, lifted acidity. A definite wine to be enjoyed with food.

Paringa Estate Estate Series Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay 2021

An elegant and textured style of Chardonnay, with rich
honey, lanolin and lemon balm notes complemented by
layers of spice and toasty oak.
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”.
Vineyard
The fruit for this wine came from the ‘Estate’ vineyard, and the Callanan’s Road
vineyard. The fruit comes from low-yielding vines, some of which are over 30 years old.
They are grown in the typical red volcanic, iron-rich soil known as Ferrasol. The vines are
sustainably cultivated, respecting the balance of the soil and the biodiversity of the
environment.
Winemaking
The fruit was hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, and the unclarified juice was
fermented in new and one-year old French oak puncheons and barriques. Initially it
was stirred monthly in barrel, to build weight and complexity. It did not go through
malolactic conversion, retaining the natural acidity and balancing the rich style. The
wine was matured in French oak, of which 30% was new.
Tasting Note
A rich and textured Chardonnay with complex aromas of citrus, white nectarine and
nutty, toasty notes. Lovely weight on the palate is lifted by fine, natural freshness
through to an exquisitely long finish.
