2016 Paringa Estate Shiraz
This wine is classic cool climate Shiraz. Aromas of black pepper, blackberry and plum lead onto a flavoursome palate, which is savoury and textured. Fine grained tannins give outstanding structure, balance and palate length. This is an excellent Paringa Shiraz that can be enjoyed young with food, but will also cellar well.
Reviews & Awards
This is a wine style which often confuses people, but as more and more wine lovers taste this otherworldly-shaped wine they all fall for its charms. With pepper spice, a decent amount off new oak (28% new French for 18 months), and a dark, inky colour one might consider that this all, so far, makes sense. But then add to it a fruit texture that is only ever associated with Pinot Noir and a flavour which tastes like an Hermitage made from Vosne-Romanée fruit and you can imagine the confusion. Let me tell you that this is an experience that you do not want to miss though, because this is a wine like no other and it has never failed to gain immense scores in my notes.”
Deep red/purple colour. The aroma is smoky, toasty and has a smoked charcuterie aspect. The wine is softly tannic and fleshy, the palate well-concentrated and deep, with a lot of heft and weight and chew. A slightly chunky wine with masses of flavour and grip. It promises to be long term.
