The beautifully fragrant, impeccably balanced, and smooth The Paringa Pinot Noir is cultivated on a single vineyard with minimal water, ensuring low yields. After a cold soak lasting approximately four days, the wine undergoes fermentation in 3500-liter French oak foudres. It matures in French oak barriques (40-50% new) for 11 months. This exemplary Mornington Peninsula expression exhibits fresh aromas of black cherry and ginger, alluring fruitiness, supple tannins, and subtle oak complexities.


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.

In 2019 this pinot noir comes from two blocks of our oldest vines from our home vineyard plus a small amount from our newest Abel clone block. It is the quintessential expression of our unique site in Red Hill South.

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 (40% new).
