Lindsay McCall’s Paringa Estate is one of the stars of the Mornington Peninsula (Victoria), consistently making some of the finest examples of Shiraz, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay. The Peninsula Estate (PE) is the entry level range although as you will see, it sets the bar very high, especially in this 2018 vintage which was one of the finest for many years in the Mornington.

The bouquet is floral and fruit driven with citrus and stone fruit aromas. The palate has rich stone fruit flavours, good texture and a persistent long finish. Can be enjoyed now until at least 2024.
