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.

Deep colour, and with the oak playing a dominant role on the bouquet, still showing cashew, grapefruit and wood spices; the palate is rich and very toasty, high impact and revealing a slight resin character that is just a little discordant; time may make the difference.

Winery Tasting Notes
The bouquet of this wine shows a complex mix of grapefruit and stone fruit, combined with a hint of struck match barrel ferment aromas.
The palate displays ripe stone fruit, a rich texture, round mouth feel but also a fineness reflective of the cool season.
