The acclaimed wine writer Matthew Jukes has released his Top 100 wines for 23/24. Once again, Paringa Estate is listed as one of the top wineries available in the UK.
2022 Paringa Estate ‘Peninsula’ Pinot Noir “I thought I might catch the tail end of the glorious 2021 Peninsula Pinot in time for this Report, but this wine moves like greased lightning in our market, and a sample of the 2022 arrived on my doorstep like a long-lost puppy and within moments, it became part of the family. Bright, crisp, tangy and black fruited, yes black(!), this is a delicious, lively and deceptively powerful wine. It has the same shape, style and minerality of a modern Monthelie Rouge, and it is crammed with herbs, spices and a fair old dollop of flashy oak. The back label says this is the 35th vintage – gosh, how time flies! Having said this, some things never change, and this wine, and the others in the portfolio, still represent some of the most compelling value for money in the world if you are, like me, obsessed with the Pinot Noir grape.”
