Overview

The name “The Paringa” denotes the single vineyard origin of this wine. Lindsay McCall planted the first vines on the Paringa Estate vineyard in 1985, with ten acres being under vine by 1990. Fruit of distinction is born from a combination of red volcanic (Ferrasol) soil, a north facing aspect and altitude of 146m on Paringa Road, Red Hill South.

Despite extreme heat over the Black Saturday period the 2009 growing season was cooler than recent vintages. Small berry size resulted in yields 20-30% lower than average but provided fruit of great concentration.

Expert Reviews

A fraction of purple to the crimson colour; the super-fragrant bouquet leaps out of the glass, exuding black cherries and a dash of French oak; the palate has even greater elegance and length than the '10 Estate, oak and tannins part of the picture as an essential part of the future of a beautiful pinot. Has cruised along serenely since last taste a year ago, its future as sure today as it was then. Rating 97 - Drink by 2019 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2012)
