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. From this site 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. In creating this wine viticulture and winemaking practices are approached with the intent of preserving a pure expression of site from soil through to bottle.

Expert Reviews

Vivid green hue; the bouquet offers a strong accent of spicy oak, with the pure pear and nectarine fruit lingering beneath; the palate is soft and generous on entry, showing great concentration and a long expansive rush of sweet fruit and charcuterie on the finish; big boned and warm, done well. Rating 94 - Drink by 2018 - Ben Edwards, Austarlian Wine Companion (MAR/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2010 vintage is considered exceptional. 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.

The restrained yet complex bouquet offers grapefruit, mandarin zest, bath talc, floral aspects and a hint of sulphide. The textural palate is long and fine.
