' Quintessential Wines - Paringa Shiraz

Paringa Shiraz 2017


This wine is a deep crimson red with a garnet hue that exhibits a lifted bouquet of white pepper, sage, red berry fruits and notes of cedar and spice. The palate is full and generous with fruit flavors of plum, black currants, and dark cherries. Undertones of fine grain French oak and mocha are complimented by a soft tannin structure, supported with a natural acid backbone. Secondary notes of tobacco and leather add to the complexity that leads into a soft and lingering finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The 2017 Paringa Shiraz was traditionally fermented in small-batch open fermenters with hand-plunging and pumping-over keeping the wine on the skins for just over two weeks of maximum flavor and color extraction.

Serving Hints
Serve at room temperature with brisket, classic slow-cooked Texas BBQ, grilled lamb or grass-fed beef. Also a great accompaniment with hearty beef stew or mildly spiced Mexican stew.
