The Paringa Chardonnay 2013

Once harvested the fruit was whole bunch pressed with the unclarified juice being fermented with indigenous yeast in new and one year old French Oak Barriques. The wine was barrel stirred fortnightly during the eleven months of maturation and allowed to undergo malolatic fermentation.

The bouquet of this wine is a complex mix of nectarine, citrus and funky indigenous yeast aromas. The palate has similar citrus and stone fruit flavours along with beautiful texture and length. This is an “older world” style of Chardonnay combining both elegance and complexity

THE PARINGA

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

WINEMAKING

Fruit for this wine is sourced from nine rows of 26 year old P58 clone chardonnay planted on East – West rows directly outside the winery doors, the "Winery Block"".

Once harvested the fruit was whole bunch pressed with the unclarified juice being fermented with indigenous yeast in new and one year old French Oak Barriques. The wine was barrel stirred fortnightly during the eleven months of maturation and allowed to undergo malolatic fermentation.
