2015 Paringa Estate The Paringa Single Vineyard Pinot Noir

2015 Paringa Estate The Paringa Single Vineyard Pinot Noir

The Prince of Paringa, and off on a voyage of its own, finer and more savoury than any of the '16 Paringa Pinots. Red cherry, wild strawberry and spice form irresistible waves of flavour and texture. Elegance at a stratospheric level.

DESCRIPTION
  • One of the greatest, most classic names in Victorian wine, with their absolute flagship release Pinot Noir.

    If there is a vintage that you want to chase premium Pinot Noir from, it is 2015, and in particular, the wines of the Yarra and Mornington. With a vintage that had the best of both worlds (long, warm spells of sunshine, alongside the intermittent rain), this The Pargina is a wine that you can see had the ultimate hang-time on the vines. Savoury, earthen, powerful and structured, this is equivalent of most 1er Cru Burgundy or above.

    Extraordinarilyy dense, with rose, cherries, savoury oak and sweet cola, Paringa have nobbled a good one.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    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.

    TASTING NOTES

    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.

    'Cherries and spice, slight rubbery reduction, nutty oak. Light and spicy with bright red fruits, cinnamon oak, silky and fine, pure and long with gentle graphite tannin teasing it out. Stylish and very fine.'
    95+ points - Gary Walsh

    'Medium-red colour with a slight purple tint. The bouquet is light and 'straight' (not stemmy), with a talcy perfumed aspect. The wine is intense and focused on the mid-palate with a savoury, meaty, charcuterie note. Drying but balanced tannins bring up the rear. Attractive development is having some effect now. A very fine pinot.'
