2021 Paringa Estate The Paringa Chardonnay
Our most awarded chardonnay ever produced, the 2021 vintage has collected seven trophies over the past 2 years.
Every vintage this exceptional chardonnay expresses the beauty of this site. The nose is highly perfumed, with notes of grapefruit, lemon zest and flinty sulphides. The complex palate has power, finesse and great length.
Reviews & Awards
“The high acid year has favoured the suite of chardonnays, this undergoing mlf yet still resulting in a finely tuned and tighter than usual The Paringa. No shrinking violet though – packed with stone fruit, grapefruit and Meyer lemon and a powder puff of spices, honeycomb and malt. Super savoury, long and detailed, even lipsmacking. Classy stuff.”
3 Trophies – Best Chardonnay, White Wine of Show & Wine of Show
“Softer and more restrained than the estate Chardonnay, the salty, flinty, ferment characters are more in harmony with the fruit in the 2021 The Paringa Single Vineyard Chardonnay. There are notes of lanolin, cheesecloth, preserved lemon and cold tea. It is saturating, complex and layered with juicy, pithy acidity through the mid-palate and finish. It’s a really smart and wonderful wine.”
Trophy – Best Regional Chardonnay
Trophy – Best Chardonnay
“A pungent nose, playing a reductive hand with just the right amount of flint and mineral. Creamed cashew, nougat and a verdant riff of nettle across the core. The finish, streamlined and juicy. The oak evident at the edges. There is nothing too terse here, despite the tension. This will age very well. Drink or hold.”
