Paringa Estate Shiraz 2016.

The Paringa Estate Shiraz is a superb example of cool climate Australian Shiraz. This superb red wine is full of peppery spice and deep damson and blackcurrant fruit. Drink it on it's own if you like bold red wines but it's better when served with food like Welsh rarebit or a big juicy steak.

Founded in 1984 by Lindsay McCall when he purchased a derelict orchard, Paringa Estate started small with a three tonne harvest in 1988 but has grown considerably in the intervening years. Production is now at 200 tonnes and Paringa Estate is one of the most highly awarded wineries in Australia, regularly winning gold trophies for its Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. “One of the best, if not the best, wineries on the Peninsula' says James Halliday.

Vintage

Warm and dry conditions through flowering ensured good berry set. Average temperatures during February and March provided long and even ripening and allowed for fruit to be picked at optimal maturity. It was one of the best ever vintages in the history of Paringa Estate. The fruit was picked on 22nd April.

Vineyard

The vineyard is the home block at the Paringa winery. It was first planted by Lindsay McCall in 1985. The northfacing vineyard sits at an altitude of 146 metres above sea level and the soil is red volcanic, known as Ferrasol, and is typical of the region. The vines are trellised to a split canopy to balance the fertile soil.

Winemaking

The hand picked fruit was 100% destemmed and cold soaked for four days prior to the yeast inoculation. The wine spent a total of 21 days on skins in open fermenters with gentle plunging. Post fermentation, the wine was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, of which 70% were new.

Tasting Note

A serious cool climate Shiraz with incredibly focused aromas of pepper, ink and spice set against damson fruit and silky almost pinot-esque texture. A long life ahead and one of Australia's finest examples of cool climate Shiraz.

Serving Suggestion

This works well with a Morrocan influenced tagine or a traditional shepherds pie

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
