Somewhere near the Seaview end of McLaren Vale's Chapel Hill Road, a perfunctory passerine perched her pincers astride a pair of power poles and saw herself alit. Down she went amongst the dry grown branches of an old Grenache vineyard, setting the valuable veterans ablaze. The scorched site eventually came to the attention of a winemaking trio, the Messrs Leske, Tynan & Cooke, Masters of Wine and a venerable vintner, all driven by a consuming passion to make greater Grenache. Thistledown vintage very small amounts of the most extraordinary Grenache. Beautifully detailed and conspicuously elegant, their floral bouquets and graceful finish emulate the aromatic lift and peacock's tail of a prettily perfumed Pinot Noir. Magnificent to savour as a captivating aperitif, a bliss alongside.. Polly & the pyre to paradise»

Paringa Estate wines regularly enjoy an unmatched level of success in as many trade shows and national competitions as they are entered, the only limitation being a relatively small size of production. Chardonnay is had picked off a single block of vines on the north side of Callanans Road Vineyard at Red Hill South. Whole bunches are passed through an air bag press to obtain the highest quality free run juices. Parcels are barrel fermented in a high proportion of new Vosges and Allier French oak barriques. Paringa spends almost a year maturing on sedimentery yeasts, whilst being treated to a course of monthly lees battonage for complexity and palate richness.
Medium yellow green in colour. Savoury bouquet of grilled nuts, lemon and mineral. The palate displays citrus and stonefruit, nectarine and peach, along with the creamy nutty characteristics introduced by barrel fermentation. The mouthfeel is long and rich, finishing with subtle malolactic caramel/ butterscotch flavours and good natural acidity.
