Paringa Estate Peninsula Chardonnay 2015
Schoolteacher-turned-winemaker Lindsay McCall has shown an absolutely exceptional gift for winemaking across a range of styles, but with immensely complex Pinot Noir and Shiraz leading the way. The wines have an unmatched level of success in the wine shows and competitions Paringa Estate is able to enter, the limitation being the relatively small size of production. His skills are no less evident in contract winemaking for others. Winery Rating 5 stars. James Halliday
The fruit for this wine was sourced from our four Estate managed vineyards within the Red Hill sub-region.
The winemaking process for this wine involved chardonnay fruit being whole bunch pressed, clarifying the juice and barrel fermenting in seasoned French Oak (approximately 20% indigenous yeast). The fruit driven bouquet displays ripe peach, melon and mandarin. The palate is fresh, round and generous with melon and almond milk flavors combining with nutty barrel ferment characters.
