Wines worth celebrating
Paringa Estate’s founder, owner and chief winemaker Lindsay McCall has been hosting a series of events to mark the 25th Paringa Estate vintage. The last was a slap-up dinner at Bennelong last week.
Seventeen Paringa wines (tasting notes) were matched with Guillaume Brahimi’s superb food, none better than the 2004 Estate pinot noir (tasting note), matched with duck rillettes. This was arguably the greatest vintage of the 25 years, although 2010 will give it a run for its money.
McCall let slip that his son Jamie, who was sitting his final wine science exams at Adelaide University as we spoke, will soon be returning to Paringa Estate to help his dad.
Great to see these dynasties starting up around the country.
