Paringa Estate Pinot Noir

The Estate Pinot Noir sits in the middle of the three levels of Paringa's Pinot Noirs. I sometimes find the Paringa Pinot Noirs too big and fruity and upfront, but this is not the case with the 2005 Estate Pinot Noir.

This wine has more red berry flavours, mainly strawberry and redcurrant, it is quite tannic and dry. The flavours stay quite long, but there is a stringency, which is slightly unpleasant. I found the wine performed well with food, but when I had a glass on its own, it did not quite come together.
