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) The fruit for these wines is from our mature low yielding Estate grown vineyards. A combination of vine age and careful vineyard management produces our best quality fruit. Between 30% and 50% new French Oak combined with the powerful fruit flavours produce the unique Paringa "style" upon which our reputation has been built. Read less

So - this was a compromise with my partner who really loves Champagne. It came as a pleasant surprise. I was concerned that this would be headache inducing and sweet - but truly it's not. Like a nice light Shiraz - with the added fun of sparkles ... not a wine for every occasion - but when you just can't face champagne, give this a try.. you may be pleasantly surprised!

At around $10/bottle, this is a great every day red.

Finally a Shiraz with more than just upfront fruit. Sure there's black berries and spice but also a fine backbone of acidity and just the right touch of tannins.
