Join Lindsay McCall for a very special evening to celebrate the magic of truffle season and the much anticipated release of the 2018 The Paringa Pinot Noir – recently awarded 97 Points by James Halliday and Huon Hooke.
This ‘Single Vineyard’ pinot noir comes from a few rows of our oldest vines in the estate vineyard, which are now over 30 years old. It is the quintessential expression of our unique site in Red Hill South.
James Halliday says, “Structured. Powerful. And long. All you really need to know is that this bristles with quality. It’s tangy and it’s not sweet but it’s powered by concentrated strawberry notes. It also floats herb notes throughout and races with dry roasted spice characters. Orange oil, or something like it, adds a lifted, flowery note. It’s pure quality and class.” 97 Points
Huon Hooke says, “Medium-red colour with a trace of purple in the rim. The bouquet is shy and reserved, with sousbois notes, primary fruit in hiding, but the palate has weight and richness, concentration and tannin grip, and it all lingers on well. It doesn’t lack fruit but is certainly not ‘fruity’. Oak treatment is generous but not overdone. An impressive wine of density, power and concentration, with long-term potential.” 97 Points
The evening will be celebrated with our three The Paringa wines – 2018 The Paringa Chardonnay, 2018 The Paringa Pinot Noir & 2018 The Paringa Shiraz perfectly paired with a three course truffle inspired menu designed by Head Chef Joel Alderson.
