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

This was fantastic! Such a crowd-pleaser. Delicious ripe plums accentuated by a nice spiciness. And the bubbles make it fun!

Winemakers Notes - The drought limited winter rains and threatened growing season water supply. Resultant yield reductions ensured optimum maturity in flavor, aroma and tannin profiles and an Australian record 15 consecutive day heat wave amplified the richness and intensity.

This Shiraz offers so much more than just upfront fruit. Sure, there are blackberries and spice, but you'll also appreciate the fine backbone of acidity, and just the lightest touch of tannin.

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.
