Expert Reviews

96 Points - Nick Butler - The Real ReviewIt's no more than medium-weight in the glass, though loaded with aromatic punch: bunch and oak-spice, red licorice, wild strawberries wrapped in cloves. It carries more than enough fruit-weight and charm, sapid and ripe, raspberries front and centre. A beautiful pinot noir
92 Points - Huon HookeMedium to light red colour with a tinge of purple. The bouquet is sweetly-cherried and fragrant, clean and bright, the palate light to medium-weighted and soft-textured against a firm-spine background. The wine is moderately rich and fleshy, although not especially big or powerful. Fine, slightly gritty tannins. A charming pinot.

How's it taste?

The nose is complex and perfumed, with depth and vitality. The classic aromas of red and dark cherries mingle with hints of spice. The palate is structured yet elegant, with excellent fruit weight and firm tannins. The long, complex and savoury finish.

How was it made?

2016 was an early vintage as the picking dates show. The warm growing season produced high quality fruit with good yields across all our vineyards. In the winery berries were de-stemmed (100%) and fermented in two-tonne open fermenters. Maturation took place over 11 months on lees in French Oak barrels (38% new).

Who made it?

Having a “wine epiphany” has become something of a cliché, but for Lindsay McCall, it led to the creation of one of the finest wineries in Australia. The wine he tasted was a 1980 Seville Estate shiraz, which he ordered in a restaurant one night in 1983. In 1984, Lindsay, a geography teacher at the time, bought an old north-facing orchard. A year later, after clearing it, he began planting the ten-acre property with vines. He sought advice on planting shiraz in the region, but was told by a local vigneron that it wouldn’t ripen in the cool maritime climate of the Peninsula. Not to be deterred, he planted it in the warmest spot. Flash forward a few years to 1990 when Lindsay won gold for his Shiraz at the Yarra Valley Wine Show. A few years later he was able to give up his day job as a teacher and focus solely on producing outstanding wine. By the mid 90s, Paringa Estate was winning numerous awards and receiving high accolades. In 2007, Halliday awarded Paringa Estate the "Best Winery in Australia." Not bad for a bloke with no formal training. Paringa Estate’s home vineyard and winery are located in the picturesque surrounds of Red Hill South in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula wine region. The home vineyard is fully planted to 10 acres only, but production in recent years has included fruit from additional select vineyards in the region. Lindsay still heads up the winemaking but is now joined by his son, Adam, who is excited to lead Paringa Estate into the next generation.
