Paringa Estate Pinot Noir 2019 (Mornington Peninsula, Victoria) "...dark cherry, spice, fine tannins..."
Owner Lindsay McCall began planting the property in 1985. Whilst he has experimented with different varieties over the years, the estate vineyard is now planted with mature vines of pinot noir, shiraz, chardonnay and pinot gris. He also leases five vineyards around the Mornington Peninsula planted with these varieties, and a few others. The Callanans Road Vineyard has a small riesling block, and the McCabe site, viognier. Lindsay recently took over the lease of the Hawkins Hill Vineyard, where he has planted two new pinot noir clones, 667 and Abel.
"The nose is complex and perfumed. Aromas of dark cherries mingle with hints of spice. The palate has a luscious core of dark cherry fruit, firm tannins, and a long savoury finish. The impressive structure of this wine will ensure considerable longevity." - Winery Notes
