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”.

The vineyard is situated in the cool climate sub region of Red Hill at an altitude of 146
metres above sea level. The estate vines are 14 years old and are grown on a
distinctive Lyre or U shaped trellis. They provide 50% of the fruit for this wine. The
remaining 50% comes from a contracted grower in Moorooduc which is a slightly
warmer site and adds complexity and a layered dimension to the wine. The
Mornington Peninsula is influenced by the cooling maritime climate, which helps the
grapes to retain acidity as they ripen. The soils are generally red basalt, which store
sufficient water supplies to keep the vine irrigated through the warm summer season.
These soils are the result of ancient lava flows, are iron rich, moderately fertile and
drain surface water easily. This results in healthy vines with deep root systems,
producing high quality berries that translate into intense, concentrated wines.

The hand-picked fruit was whole bunched pressed to a stainless steel tank, where
approximately two thirds of the juice underwent cool fermentation at controlled
temperatures of between 12°C to 15°C, retaining the pure fruit aromatics and
freshness. The remaining third was barrel-fermented in old French oak for six months,
imparting texture and subtle complexity. The wine was filtered using a cross flow filter
and gently fined.

Tasting Note
Lifted varietal aromas of fresh cut pear and green apple, lead to a refreshing palate
of crisp, ripe pear and vibrant citrus fruit flavours. This Pinot Gris is richly flavoured with
a lovely mid-palate texture and balance.
