Paringa Estate The Paringa Chardonnay 2015

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. From this site 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. In creating this wine viticulture and winemaking practices are approached with the intent of preserving a pure expression of site from soil through to bottle.

Fruit for this wine is sourced from nine rows of 27 year old chardonnay vines  planted directly outside the winery doors, the 'Winery Block'. The bouquet has a complex floral lift of citrus and stone fruit, with some delicate lees aromas. Cool climate white fleshy stone fruits, citrus notes and savoury nutty oak flavours characterise the palate. This Chardonnay has a round, textured palate harmoniously balanced by a fine natural acidity that leads to a long, persistent finish.
