Struck-match, grapefruit pith, bacon fat, green melon and a whiff of gun flint—there’s a real lift of complex aromatics. The palate is focused, layered and long, plenty of pithy citrus fruits, mineral and tight, linear acidity. There's real brightness and a textured, phenolic grip. Lively, punchy and layered. 12 Feb 2022 Drink 2022â€?029

While the Estate chardonnay works off a racy, linear theme and offers more class, The Paringa is all power. More of everything in this. More malty oak, mlf, lots of barrel ferment flavours, a density across the palate and lots of reduction �funky and flinty sulphides loved by many. As its power has been harnessed, it's behaving. Just.

The Paringa' Single Vineyard Chardonnay is the ultimate expression of the unique home vineyard in Red Hill South. It comes from a block of nine rows, which are now 30 years old. The name “The Paringaâ€?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.
