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.

Bright, clear crimson; a highly fragrant, lifted bouquet of cherry and blackberry liberally sprinkled with spice and pepper leads into a finely structured and detailed palate, the fruit as fresh as a spring day, the tannins appropriately fine, the French oak integrated.

Winery Tasting Notes
The bouquet has Paringa’s distinctive savory plum & cracked black pepper/spice characters.
The palate has rich, spicy plum, blackberry & liquorice characters combined with fine grained tannins that provide excellent structure, texture & length to the wine.
