The Paringa team is confident the 2012 reds will be regarded amongst the Paringa greats. A hot weekend, then a week of solid rains in early March was followed by somewhat of an Indian summer. Pinot Noir yields in 2012 were down 20 – 30%, but resulted in great concentrated flavour & excellent overall quality.

Expert Reviews

Bright, light crimson-purple; the expressive bouquet has red and black cherry, a splash of plum and a touch of French oak; the flavours of the palate fall into line with the bouquet, but their depth and the polished tannins are all Paringa markers. Rating 95 - Drink by 2022, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014).

Pale ruby in color, the 2012 Pinot Noir has a slowly evolving nose with some kirsch and dried cranberry notes emerging over the red berry and cherry elements and dotted with a touch of lavender and wild thyme. Light to medium-bodied, it is very elegant with lovely structure of fine tannins and balanced acid. It finishes long. Rating 91 - Drink by 2019, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (FEB/2015).

Winery Tasting Notes


This wine has complex lifted aromas of red fruit / dark cherries supported by spicy savoury oak.


The palate has attractive spicy dark cherry flavours, fine grained tannins that combine to produce a lovely textural mouthful. The poise & balance of this wine make it one of the best Paringa Pinots made in recent time.
