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.

Mid-garnet, vibrant hue; the bouquet offers a beguiling array of tea smoke, red cherry, Asian spices and a well-handled seasoning of toasty oak; the palate is lively, full of energy and fine-grained tannins, and is extremely long and expansive; the peacocks tail of flavour unwinds on the scintillating finish.

Winery Tasting Notes
The nose combines elegance, depth and power whilst showing raspberry, sour cherry and black fruit with supporting spice.
The focused palate shows wonderful fruit with fine tannins and remarkable length.
