Paringa Shiraz 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a great value Shiraz from Australia that is smooth and inviting, offering a plush-textured, juicy hit of blueberry, black currant and tar that carries through a nice round finish.

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) The fruit for these wines is from our mature low yielding Estate grown vineyards. A combination of vine age and careful vineyard management produces our best quality fruit. Between 30% and 50% new French Oak combined with the powerful fruit flavours produce the unique Paringa "style" upon which our reputation has been built. Read less

Nicely fruity if a bit glossy on the nose with blackberry fruit and accents of black pepper and sweet, toasty wood spice hinting at toasted coconut. Just a touch thick on entry, hinting at being a bit sweet with plummy and blackberry fruit on the palate that shows a fine acid spine. the tannins are really soft here, and this picks up some licorice and bitter spice on the backend before turning a bit jammy and slightly sticky on the black raspberry finish. Classic Shiraz that shows some restraint but remains a bit jammy and sweetish with tannins building on the modest finish. 85pts
