The bouquet of this wine shows spicy blackberry fruit along with the lifted floral Viognier aromatics. The palate has black fruits, black pepper and fine grained tannins. A medium bodied wine with texture and power but with a fineness that reflects its cool climate origin.
- 2017 was an early vintage and the warm growing season, making it very favourable for Shiraz on the Peninsula. Resultant wines display great depth of colour and vibrant fruit.
In the winery berries were de-stemmed and co-fermented with 5% Viognier in two-tonne open fermenters. Post fermentation, barrel maturation took place for 11 months.
Appellation: Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Absolutely classic Paringa, one of the best - if not the best - of the early starters, with full-on cool climate shiraz thrust. Likewise, classic blackberry, blood plum and licorice flavours are supported by fine tannins and subtle oak.
