Overview

Despite extreme heat over the Black Saturday period the 2009 growing season was cooler than recent vintages. Small berry size resulted in yields 20-30% lower than average but provided fruit of great concentration. Berries were de-stemmed (100%) and fermented in two-tonne open fermenters. Maturation took place over the next 18 months in French Oak barrels, 30% being new.

Expert Reviews

Vibrant colour; a highly perfumed and spicy bouquet of red fruits, sage and Asian spices; the palate is fine-boned and linear, with latent power lingering beneath the fine-grained tannins; the conclusion is harmonious and expansive. Will reward patient cellaring. Rating 95 - Drink by 2025 - Ben Ewards, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

A classic Paringa Estate Shiraz balancing restraint and power. Blackcurrant pastille, raspberry licorice, a hint of tobacco, spice and a redcurrant lift on the nose.

The palate has a generous black fruit core supported by an abundance of fine grained tannins and acid line
