2002 Paringa Estate Pinot Noir from Mornington Peninsula. 14.1% alcohol, 2 trophies. Aged in 50% new French oak.

The Paringa “estate” wines use fruit from their low yielding 15 to 20 year old estate grown vines. A combination of vine age and careful vineyard management produces their best quality fruit. Between 30% and 50% new French Oak combined with the powerful fruit flavours produce the Paringa upon which their reputation has been built.

The 2002 Estate pinot noir is deep dark red in colour with brick edges. A nose of dark cherries, integrated oak and spices. The palate displays sweet dark fruit and spice. Very long finish. Clean, biggish pinot noir with depth, complexity and fine tannins to finish. Balanced oak.
