Expert Reviews

The highly perfumed bouquet of blackberry, clove and smoked meat, is framed by the generous level of high-quality toasty oak; the palate is loaded with dark fruits and moving toward full-bodied, but holds back with vibrancy and spice to conclude. Rating 94 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2010)

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2008 Estate Shiraz offers moderately pronounced aromas of black plums and cherries over mulberries, black pepper, spice and anise. Crisp, taut and medium-full bodied, the palate is very peppery with a medium-firm level of fine-grained tannins and long earthy finish. It's drinking well now though should evolve further and cellar to 2018+. Rating 92 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, eRobertParker.com (JUL/2011)

Paringa Estate in the Mornington Peninsula bears no relation whatsoever to the Paringa Estate in South Australia apart from sharing similar names. This vineyard and winery was established in the Red Hill sub-region of Mornington Peninsula in 1985 by Lyndsay McCall. A school teacher with a calling to make high quality wine in the then largely un-tapped Mornington region, Lyndsay had no formal winemaking training. Yet his ingenuity, creativity and drive allowed him to develop individual viticultural techniques (particularly his adapted Lyre trellis) that bring out the best from his unique site and clones. In spite of the vintage trials, he's made some very exciting recent releases

Winery Tasting Notes

The bouquet and palate have the Estates’ typical cracked black pepper/spice combined with blackberry and plum flavours and aromas.

Firm fine grained tannins provide excellent structure to the wine that will soften with bottle development. This is a wine that can be enjoyed young with food, but will also reward careful cellaring.
