Chardonnay is a wine that Mornington does exceedingly well, the cooling maritime breezes of Port Philip Bay encourage vines to yield fruit with complex, crisp and intense varietal flavours. Lindsay McCall is gifted at constructing the most auspicious efforts across a range of styles. Estate Chardonnay is vinified entirely from fruit grown to a half hectare of the choicest plantings grown to three estate managed vineyards at Red Hill. An effusive Mornington wine with a presence of savouryness and layers of fruit, to accompany richly cooked shellfish or escalope of veal.
Paringa Estate wines regularly enjoy an unmatched level of success in as many trade shows and national competitions as they are entered, the only limitation being a relatively small size of production. Chardonnay is had picked off a single block of vines on the north side of Callanans Road Vineyard at Red Hill South. Whole bunches are passed through an air bag press to obtain the highest quality free run juices. Parcels are barrel fermented in a high proportion of new Vosges and Allier French oak barriques. Paringa spends almost a year maturing on sedimentery yeasts, whilst being treated to a course of monthly lees battonage for complexity and palate richness.
TASTING NOTES
Medium yellow green in colour. Savoury bouquet of grilled nuts, lemon and mineral. The palate displays citrus and stonefruit, nectarine and peach, along with the creamy nutty characteristics introduced by barrel fermentation. The mouthfeel is long and rich, finishing with subtle malolactic caramel/ butterscotch flavours and good natural acidity.

More About Paringa Estate Winery
Lindsay and Margaret McCall began their incredible journey in 1984 with the purchase of a derelict orchard on Paringa Road at Red Hill Mornington
In the search for a new vineyard property, their requirements included a north facing slope, a permanent running creek and adequate wind protection. The shade thrown by the enormous 60 year old pine trees that surrounded the property proved to be a negative, but when the trees were removed it revealed the stunning views that are now such a recognisable feature of Paringa Estate. The first vines were planted in 1985 and by 1990 the 10 acres (4.2 hectares) were fully planted. Paringa Estate»
