Paringa Estate the Paringa Pinot Noir

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Intense and fragrant aromas of spice and coffee combined with the earthy character of mature Pinot Noir and a beautifully silky texture.Founded in 1984 by Lindsay McCall when he purchased a derelict orchard, Paringa Estate started small with a 3 tonne harvest in 1988 but has grown considerably in the intervening years.Production is now at 200 tonnes and Paringa Estate is one of the most highly awarded wineries in Australia, regularly winning gold trophies for its Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Grapes: 100% PInot NoirRegion: Australia / Victoria / The Home Block mornington PeninsulaMaker: Lindsay McCallNotes: The wine has rich powerful aromas of spice and dark cherry, combined with charry oak, secondary barrel ferment mocha and coffee characters, that will integrate further to become more Burgundian like with bottle age. On the palate the wine has rich ripe fruit, firm fine grained tannins helping provide excellent texture and length. This wine will live for 15 to 20 years.Serve: At 16-18c with Osso Bucco or fine French ripe cheeseABV: 13.5%Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans

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
