94 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion, 01 August 2020
Paringa Estate source the fruit for the Estate series wines from their low yielding estate vineyards, some of which are over thirty years old. Constant attention to detail in the vineyard and vine maturity produces fruit of outstanding quality.30% and 40% new French Oak combined with powerful fruit flavours and meticulous winemaking produce the unique Paringa “style” upon which our reputation has been built. 2018 was an outstanding vintage. Yields were generous, and all the varieties are of exceptional quality. The fruit for Paringa Estate's 2018 Estate Pinot Noir was de-stemmed (100%) and fermented in two-tonne open fermenters. Maturation took place over 11 months on lees in French Oak barrels (38% new).
