Fruit for these wines comes partly from our Estate managed vineyards at Red Hill plus fruit purchased from a number of carefully selected vineyards from other sub-regions of the Mornington Peninsula. The quality of these wines are often equal to many other vineyards best (James Halliday)

Winery Tasting Notes
The first Paringa Estate Shiraz to be released from the outstanding 2010 vintage. Warm and dry conditions through flowering ensured good berry set. Average temperatures during February / March provided long and even ripening and allowed for fruit to be picked at optimal maturity.
In the winery berries were de-stemmed and co-fermented with 5% Viognier in two-tonne open fermenters. Post fermentation, barrel maturation took place for 18 months.
The bouquet offers dense blackcurrant, lifted violets and spice.
The structured palate has excellent weight with an abundance of forest fruits and lingering fruit sweetness.
