Paringa Estate 2016 ‘The Paringa’ Pinot Noir


The Wine: Paringa Estate ‘the Paringa’ Pinot Noir

The Paringa ‘The Paringa Pinot’s nose is perfumed and complex. It has an ethereal elegance. 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.

“Bright, medium to deep red/ purple colour, with a brightly aromatic bouquet, spicy with a touch of oak, the palate likewise bright and nervy, fresh and intense, with lovely fruit sweet centre. It has a lightness of being that is captivating. Nut it’s also powerful. A very attractive, intense pinot with future potential.”

95 points, Huon Hooke


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.
2016 was an early vintage as the picking date shows. The warm growing season produced high quality fruit and good yields across all our blocks.

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).
