James Halliday says:“
Deep, dark colour; the rich bouquet of blackberry, satsuma plum and pepper leads into an intense and long palate; the oak is perfectly balanced and integrated, the tannins likewise. From the estate vineyard, a wine inheriting a glittering show record.

Tyson Stelzer says:“
Paringa is home to an arsenal of shiraz that has proven capable of outgunning anything in the country on the wine show circuit, thanks to its inimitable ability to bring immense power to an inherently cool climate demeanour. 2008 exemplifies this style, a powerful and ripe Paringa, loaded with exquisite black fruits of all kinds, liquorice, violets and signature Mornington cracked black pepper. It scaffolds its exuberance in a structural framework that’s nothing less than profound: seamlessly composed, finely textured, yet firm and solid tannins. Everything carries long through the finish in balanced measure, demanding considerable time to soften and relax.
