The nose is pure delight; complex aromas of white nectarine and peach, mingle with the flinty notes of recently struck matches. The palate has delicate stone fruit flavours, poised acidity, and impressive weight. The finish is long, lingering and savoury.
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)
