Paringa Estate Peninsula Chardonnay 2019 (Mornington)
The Paringa Estate Peninsula Chardonnay has aromas of grapefruit and stone fruit. The palate has lively acidity, subtle citrus flavours, and a textured palate. The finish is fresh and strong.
Paringa Estate sources fruit for the 'Peninsula Series' wines from five leased vineyards, and a few other carefully selected vineyards around the region. The wines are an exceptional expression of the Mornington Peninsula style, with the emphasis on lively fruit, displayed beautifully in the The Paringa Estate Peninsula Chardonnay
We source the fruit for these wines from our low yielding estate vineyards, some of which are over thirty years old. Constant attention to detail in the vineyard and vine maturity produces fruit of outstanding quality. 30% and 40% new French Oak combined with powerful fruit flavours and meticulous winemaking produce the unique Paringa “style” upon which our reputation has been built.
2019 was a great vintage. Not only were the yields generous, but quality is exceptional across all varieties. The reds show lovely varietal flavours and super fine tannins. Fruit was 100% de-stemmed and fermented in 2.5 tonne open fermenters. The fruit spent an average of 21 days in the fermenter on skins. Maturation took place over 11 months on lees in French oak barriques.
