PARAWA ESTATE

WE ARE SOME OF AUSTRALIA’S MOST-SOUGHT WINES

Having tried the Parawa Estate range a few years ago, the most impressive for me is their Cabernet Sauvignon blends. On the palate, there is nothing to suggest they are Aussie Cabernet-centric reds. Instead, Parawa Estate is closer to a Bordeaux Left Bank Médoc in personality, attitude, drive and energy.

Winestate

Fleurieu Shiraz 2017

The founder of Winestate, however, draws the line firmly between being publisher and vigneron.

Fleurieu Shiraz

Flashes of citrus, pear and melon with a hint of vanilla even though this is unoaked.

Fleurieu is not Simic’s first wine venture.

Our first range of wines is named after our Parawa Valley location and the Ingalalla Grand Reserve after the spectacular waterfall just 750 metres from our farm. Comte de Fleurieu Premier Reserve Cabernets recognizes the French connection where French explorer (Nicolas) Baudin gave homage to his benefactor, Charles Pierre Claret Fleurieu, Lord of the Admiralty, by naming the region Fleurieu from which we get Fleurieu Peninsula.
Floral with red/blue/black fruit. Fresh. A bit closed, but also a touch austere on the finish. I felt the fruit would shine even more if there was less oak. Syrah is best without any new oak and best when aged in large, old, wooden foudres, anywhere between 20 and 120 hectolitres. The touch of dryness on the finish was confirmed for me when I learnt later than both new and seasoned French oak were used for the elevage.

Fleurieu Chardonnay 2019

Flashes of citrus, pear and melon with a hint of vanilla even though this is unoaked. Fine line of fruit and freshness.

Fleurieu Cabernets 2017

This is the star of the range. This blend of Cabernets – Sauvignon and Franc – is a ringing success.
