The Paringa Pinot Noir 2013

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. 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.

This wine has a lifted fragrant bouquet of red & dark cherries complimented by spicy, savoury oak. The palate has an abundance of fine tannins wrapped around a core of spicy dark cherry fruit, displaying great texture & length. This is a beautifully balanced Paringa Pinot Noir from an excellent vintage that needs some years to evolve and develop.

At the Paringa Estate Vineyard, Pinot Noir is represented by three clones across three blocks; an acre of MV6, an acre of G5V15 and 0.69 acres of D2V5.  

VINTAGE

Pinot noir yields in 2013 were around our long term average; however the vintage created Pinots with great colour, concentrated flavours and excellent quality.

WINEMAKING

In the winery berries were de-stemmed (100%) and imported European fourdes. Maturation took place over 11 months on lees in French Oak barrels (50% new).
