Paringa Estate The Paringa Pinot Noir 2018


Categories: ,

The nose is perfumed and complex. Red & dark cherry aromas mingle with hints of spice and earth. The palate has a solid core of vibrant red cherry fruit framed with fine tannins, which give it texture, finesse and enormous persistence on the palate.

Vintage & Winery Notes

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. In creating this wine viticulture and winemaking practices are approached with the intent of preserving a pure expression of site from soil through to bottle.

2018 was an outstanding vintage. Yields were generous, and all the varieties are of exceptional quality.

In the winery berries were de-stemmed (100%) and fermented in large format oak foudres. Maturation took place over 11 months on lees in French Oak barrels (43% new).
