The bouquet of this wine shows spicy blackberry fruit along with the lifted floral viognier aromatics. The palate has black fruits, black pepper and fine grained tannins. A medium bodied wine with texture and power but with a fineness that reflects its cool climate origin.
About Paringa Estate
In 1984, Lindsay, a geography teacher at the time, bought an old north-facing orchard. A year later, after clearing it, he began planting the ten-acre property with vines. He sought advice on planting shiraz in the region, but was told by a local vigneron that it wouldn’t ripen in the cool maritime climate of the Peninsula. Not to be deterred, he planted it in the warmest spot. (Website)
