Made from small quantities of the best wine possible from Paringa Estate, and only made in years when wine quality reaches a required level of excellence. To date The Paringa Pinot Noir and The Paringa Shiraz have been made in 2000 to 2012. Each is a blend chosen from the best new barrels from Estate grown fruit, producing wines of both power and elegance that will reward careful cellaring for 5 -10 years. Single Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay released for the first time in 2008.

Expert Reviews

The winemaking techniques are the same as for the Estate, but the grapes are 100% from the home vineyard, and the colour is a fraction deeper than the Estate; the wine has rounder mouthfeel without being the least bit heavy, the flavours ripe but very refined, the oak perfectly balanced and integrated. Rating 95 - Drink by 2017 - James Halliday, Australia Companion (FEB/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Despite extreme heat over the Black Saturday period the 2009 growing season was cooler than recent vintages. Handpicked fruit was whole bunch pressed and racked to barrel on solids where indigenous yeast carried out fermentation. Barrel maturation took place over nine months in 50% new French oak barrels with regular barrel stirring.


The nose offers a complex array of white peach and pear skin combining with vanilla, nougat and grilled almonds.


The palate offers peach derived fruit, subtle texture with a fresh acid line carrying the wine through to a long finish.
