Pinot Noir is best known for the light- to medium-bodied reds of regions such as Burgundy and Central Otago (and, in Australia, Tasmania and Adelaide Hills). It also forms part of the classic Champagne blend and is a key contributor to many of the best sparklings. Pinot makes excellent rosés too, with the variety’s delicate charms perfectly suiting this lighter style.
A developing, mature nose of warm red fruits with earth and spice and a savoury note of black tea. The riper nose gives way to a more savoury palate, layered and complex with mushroom, dried herbs, and meaty tones amongst the fleshy fruits. Excellent.

"Perfumed, spicy, liquorice root and amaro herbs, succulent red fruits. It’s medium bodied, silky and fine, with a deep sweep of fine pumice stone tannin, cool minerally acidity, delicious flavour, and that tasty Campari edge pushing through the finish. Here’s a lovely wine, and pretty much, it feels at ease with itself and ready to drink from any time…now." Gary Walsh

"Hand-picked, whole berries and whole bunches open-fermented with gentle plunging. A wine that explains the love at fist sight when the Tolpuddle partners saw the vineyard. It comes flying through the weather of the vintage that trapped others with a highly perfumed red flower bouquet and into a layered palate reflecting the whole bunch/whole berry fermentation, spicy, savoury, foresty notes form a laurel wreath on the fruit, the oak integrated." Halliday Wine Companion

An elegant nose presents, with complex aromatics of ripe cherries and dried rose petals, a touch of white pepper and a hint of alpine forest. Balanced and integrated, the palate comprises of sweet strawberries, cranberries, and traces of rhubarb. The wine closes at length with a finish of toasted brioche, a dash of caramel and fresh raspberries.

"The Prince of Paringa, and off on a voyage of its own, finer and more savoury than any of the '16 Paringa Pinots. Red cherry, wild strawberry and spice form irresistible waves of flavour and texture. Elegance at a stratospheric level." Halliday Wine Companion
