2019 Paringa Estate Pinot Noir

12 x 750ml
A defining feature of this vintage (apart from lower yields) is accessibility in the wines. Here the Estate offers plushness, personality and satisfaction. Expect juniper and red cherries, with a sprinkling of baking spices infused into a fuller-bodied style. Smooth, supple tannins sashay across the palate. Read more

A bright, energetic pinot with aromas of strawberries, cranberries, raspberries, rose hips and lemons. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a juicy, transparent core of red fruit. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

We're in business here. This set off the value meter straight away. Cherry-plum flavours with licks of spice, a slight toastiness, excellent fruit purity and a decent sling to the finish. Fresh, complex-enough and more. Delicious drinking.

Attractive violet and blueberry aromas, as well as a wealth of cherries and spiced chocolate. A sappy edge, too. The palate has impressive fleshy presence. Concentrated and balanced pinot here. Drink now. Screw cap.

Deepish red/purple colour, bright and youthful. The bouquet is fresh and alive, dark fruits and blackcurrant jubes, some lifted spice notes. The wine is again very bright and bold on the palate, youthfully vigorous and gently firm in its tannins, but balanced and very agreeable already, while it appears to have a good cellaring future. Excellent value.

Gary Walsh - The Wine Front

There was supposed to be a big vertical of Paringa Estate Pinot in Sydney a few weeks ago, but it was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic (yes, it’s global by definition). Anyway, wines came in today instead. It seems like a good year for this wine. It’s vigorous, has light but positive grip and sappy acidity, bright red fruits, along with some spice and undergowthy kinds of things. Finish is tight and long, crunchy cranberry and maybe something like pomegranate. Great drinking.
