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
This wine is a fruit driven style that has genuine ripe pinot characteristics with considerable depth and flavour. The bouquet and palate has dark cherry fruit flavours and aromas, some spice and subtle oak characters. An excellent current drinking pinot, will reward short-term cellaring of 3 to 5 years.
Peninsula Series: Fruit for these wines comes partly from our Estate managed vineyards at Red Hill plus fruit purchased from a number of carefully selected vineyards from other sub-regions of the Mornington Peninsula. “The quality of these wines are often equal to many other vineyards best” (James Halliday)
