Paringa Estate

Paringa Estate

School teacher Lindsay McCall fulfilled a dream in 1984 when he bought a derelict orchard in the Mornington Peninsula, south of Melbourne, and over the following year prepared it and planted his 2.5 hectare vineyard.

It wasn’t easy and for the first decade Lindsay grew his grapes and made his wine in parallel with his teaching career, but in 1996 he struck out to fly solo as a winemaker. His first harvest was some 3 tonnes of fruit but these days he harvests 220 tonnes from his own expanded site of 55 hectares, and from growers nearby.

He grows pinot noir, chardonnay, shiraz and pinot gris, and makes a number of cuvées at the winery which was built in 1998. He has won numerous awards along the way.

The style here is not shy and retiring and the wines deliver rich, bold varietal flavours but without ever losing sight of balance, complexity and the terroir from whence they came, hence the several cuvées.
